After School Arts ProgramEvery year, 500 school age children across 15 sites — from nearly every community in Hamilton including Stoney Creek, Dundas, North End, Downtown, East End, Hamilton Mountain, and three Burlington locations — participate in 16 weeks (24 hours) of quality art, drama, music and dance programming in partnership with Today’s Family and YMCA Hamilton/Burlington/Brantford.

The program’s culminating performance series is a celebration with over 300 participants on stage at the Hamilton Conservatory for the Arts and on-site in after school locations!
