ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany YMCA started running its Active After school program on Monday. The after school program is available for kids 5-14.

The program allows kids to get a head start on their homework, play sports and even learn some cooking.

"Anything from trying to fix a snack at home and having something on the stove and having it cause a fire," said Program Director Kawona Holliday-Wakefield. "We never know what can happen to our children so its always important to try and provide for them a very safe place for them after school."

The program runs weekdays from 2:30 p.m. and 6 p.m.
