Life-Changing Opportunities.  CSY coordinates Cincinnati Public Schools’ district-wide afterschool initiative via 120 partners at 32 CPS schools. Students enjoy nine research-based program elements that contribute to over 50% of our students increasing their state reading and math test performance.  From foreign language clubs to STEM project teams, our students love to learn afterschool! We need more volunteers and partners to reach more CincyAfterSchool students and families. For more information, email Katie Chadwell or call (513) 246-3212.

  • Extend a hand to help adults who want to do more, be more or live healthier

  • Advocate for the Y’s efforts to influence policies and initiatives that positively impact societal issues of importance to the nation, and your community
