Clinton YMCA Working to Bring Y-Zone Program to Farmer City

The Clinton YMCA and Blue Ridge School district officials are coordinating an effort to bring the Y-Zone after school program to Farmer City.


Targeting the program to launch after the first of the year, Y Youth Program Director David Torbert on the WHOW Morning Show Monday told Regional Radio News, they are still finding out what the need is for the program in Farmer City and the communities served by the district.



Y-Zone is a safe place for kids to go during the after school hours and receive help on homework or just have a place to have some fun with their friends. Torbert indicates its structure will look very similar to the Clinton Y-Zone program.



According to Torbert, while it might seem like there is plenty of time before the program is rolled out, he says they face the daunting task of finding qualified volunteers to work with the kids in the program.



To get more information, Torbert points any parent of a student in the Blue Ridge district to contact their child's school or to reach out to the Y for further information. The YMCA in Clinton can be reached at 217-935-8307.
