For Social Development


The La Porte County Family YMCA is a leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We are a powerful association of men, woman and children of all ages and from all walks of life joined together by a shared passion: to strengthen the foundations of our community. 

With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. Our Y ensures that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. To do our important work, our Y relies on support from members, donors, volunteers and community leaders. 

Our Y believes that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our community. Every day our impact is felt when a mentor inspires a child, when an individual makes a healthy choice and when the community comes together for the common good. 

Our Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children, adults, families and communities. There is no other nonprofit quite like the Y. Be a part of a cause committed to moving people and communities forward.

Afterschool Kids

When the bell rings at the end of the school day, children need a safe and nurturing place to go when their parents are still at work or away from home. Our Y provides afterschool programs for children that attend Westville Elementary and Rolling Prairie Elementary School.  Olive Elementary and Prairie View Elementary are provided care at Rolling Prairie. Children are led in fun games, homework assistance, arts and crafts and are provided with a snack in the afternoon everyday. 

Rolling Prairie: This program serves Rolling Prairie, Prairie View and Olive Elementary Schools. The program is located at Rolling Prairie Elementary School. New Prairie United School Corporation provides busing to and from the other schools served. Children have the option of attending the school’s breakfast each morning.

Hours are 6:00 a.m. until the start of school and from the end of school until 6:00 p.m. Cost: $2.50/hour plus annual registration fee of $20/one child or $30/two or more children.

Westville: The program is only fun after school, from the time school lets out until 6:00 p.m.
