Building Positive Identity

Y-Quest offers a fun, welcoming space after school Monday through Thursday. Students learn the skills, knowledge, and mindsets they need to handle strong emotions, better understand and connect with their peers, and avoid and resolve conflicts.

Quality time with a mentor and supportive peers can improve a child’s academic performance, self-esteem, decision-making skills and relationships with peers and family.

Y-CAP’s Group Mentoring screens, trains and matches two volunteer adult mentors with a group of 6-8 youth. Mentors lead sessions, utilizing group activities and discussions to build healthy, supportive, safe and fun relationships within the group.


Our after-school programs meet Monday through Thursday. Transportation home is provided at select program locations.
