FOCUS - "YMCA of Greater Cincinnati 2012"

The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati is much more than a place to swim, work out, sign up for team sports and group exercise classes, it is also a proven place where children are enriching their lives intellectually.  

Research has confirmed that more than 50 percent of children attending the YMCA’s CincyAfterSchool program have increased their math and reading test scores and are generally outperforming non-participating Cincinnati Public School District students. This successful program is now being test piloted nationally. We also learn more about the other summer learning programs that are working toward keeping young people engaged physically and mentally.

In addition, we discuss the Y’s Cincinnati Black and Latino Achievers Program that has also yielded some impressive results. One hundred percent of the seniors that participated in this program in 2011 graduated and are now involved in post-secondary education.
