ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The YMCA is offering some new after school programs this year.

The YMCA will no longer offer its 21st Century program for children at Live Oak Elementary and Alice Coachman Elementary.

They're now partnering with the principal at Live Oak Elementary to continue offering an after school program. The program will include enrichment, academic help, and a president's fitness challenge.

The Y also has a Men and Women of Distinction Program sponsored through the United Way Grant. It teaches 4th and 5th graders manners, job interview skills, and etiquette.

There's also the active after school program at the YMCA's Albany location.

Program director Teresa Manning said it's important parents choose an after school program that is the best fit for their child.

"We want to just come alongside the parents and partner with them to provide a great, safe environment for their children while they are out trying to provide the income their family needs," said Manning.

Registration information can be found on the YMCA website.
