Empowering students to succeed

Y-CAP (YMCA Community Action Programs) provides programs and experiences that close the opportunity gap for students grades K-12 in Tennessee.

We serve students through mentoring and coaching, literacy tutoring, intervention and prevention programs, and college access and readiness resources—all at no cost. Our goal is to offer support and encouragement to youth from adults who care.

Our K-12 umbrella currently covers more than 1,000 students from 14 middle schools, 12 high schools and 42 elementary schools across Davidson, Robertson and Williamson Counties.
