Unleash Your Child's Potential with Y-GIG Middle School After School Program

Y-GIG is an exceptional after-school program designed to engage and enrich middle schoolers in Wilson County. Our program runs from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., aligning with the Wilson County Schools' calendar. Upon arrival, students are provide with snacks and drinks to energize them for the day's activities. They can also utilize this time to complete any homework assignments before transitioning into their chosen 'gigs.' 'GIG' Programming runs from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. (off-site) or 5:45 p.m. (on-site). Our diverse range of engaging activities, spanning five key areas, will ignite their curiosity and inspire them to reach their full potential.

  • Academics
  • Arts and humanities
  • College and career
  • Health and wellness
  • STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics)

Our gigs (programs/activities) are provided through a partnership with many community members and businesses. Some gigs occur on-site at Y-GIG, while others occur within the community. We offer transportation to students from the Foundation YMCA building to their gigs and back. Our program runs from 3:30-6:30. We provide snacks and drinks as the students arrive, and they can work on homework until they're dismissed to their gigs. Programming runs from 4:30-5:30 (off-site)/5:45 (on-site). Students picked up at their feeder schools get on their buses to head to the schools, and then we begin the pick-up line. Parent pick-up begins at 6:00, and parents are expected to have their child(ren) picked up by 6:30 p.m. In addition, your children attending one of the five public middle schools will have access to other benefits by enrolling and registering for our program.
