The Greater Philadelphia YMCA's Out of School Time Programming provides high school students in grades 9 - 12 in the Philadelphia School District with the opportunity to participate in general after-school clubs and activities focusing on leadership and positive youth development. The clubs and activities offered encompass college readiness, civic engagement, and career readiness. Students are given the opportunity to attend college tours and workshops, Model United Nations, Youth & Government Conferences, and life skills workshops. Career readiness occurs through workshops resulting in summer employment.
