PVCC is proud to partner with the Valley of the Sun YMCA

The Valley of the Sun YMCA is excited to offer support to parents throughout the PVCC community through high quality youth development programming. Parents can enroll in our early learning center at the Scottsdale/Paradise Valley YMCA for children ages 2-5. Also available to student parents is our Kids Club child watch program providing 2 hours of engaging, interactive child watch which grants parents the time to focus on their wellness journey and academic coursework. This benefit to family members at the YMCA is available at our Desert Foothills and Scottsdale YMCA locations. Finally, the Y offers parent & child as well as youth swim lessons. Teaching lifesaving safety around water skills is part of the mission of the YMCA and a crucial part of youth development and family engagement and provides a great platform for parents and children to grow together.
