At Somerville YMCA, we offer an array of programs that help people of all ages discover their interests beyond health and wellness, and give them the opportunity to pursue them with a passion. We have programs ranging from engaging S.T.E.M and art classes for youth, to model UN, to SAT prep, and more. 

Art Classes

Kids can grow so much when they have the opportunity to unleash their imagination and creativity. Our art and musical theater programs celebrate creativity, individuality, respect and diversity, and kids are free to learn and create through new artistic experiences.

Music Lessons

Making music involves multiple skill sets, which can stimulate learning in other aspects of kids’ lives. Music lessons can improve language and memory skills, as well as self-expression. Somerville YMCA offers classes in keyboarding, guitar and more. Don't forget to ask about our private music lessons as an additional option. 

Model UN

Model UN is a way for students to gain global education. Students learn how the United Nations operates and its role in peacekeeping and humanitarian work. Learn more about our Civic Engagement Program, or contact our Branch Executive Director for details.
