Being with friends

YWCA Greenwich is the perfect hangout for middle school girls and boys. The new YW Hub is designed to enrich the social, emotional, physical and character development of middle school students in a welcoming, safe environment.

The program allows students to be with friends, share ideas, get help with homework and participate in extracurricular activities and sports, providing the flexibility to participate in whichever offerings interest them. 

Counselors who are specially trained to relate to this age group will guide students through activities and be an ear for those who want to talk about what to expect in high school.
