Help AYS Explore for Another 40 Years!

For 40 years, we’ve scoured unmapped territories in the world of out-of-school time programming, discovering new ways to elevate children’s learning and social-emotional well-being. AYS meets a basic need for Indiana families. While parents are at work, they need to know their kids are in a safe environment where they can learn and grow. With innovative curriculum, caring staff, and a commitment to student enrichment, AYS has always been here to take families further.

We treasure our kids, parents, donors, staff, board members, and everyone else who has helped drive the AYS mission. Without you, our quest to 40 years would not have been possible. Your support will ensure that we are able to continue enriching the lives of central Indiana families for the next 40 years. Over the course of the next year, we will celebrate our 40th anniversary by getting into full adventure mode, highlighting our discoveries, sharing stories, and showcasing the exploration that occurs at our programs on a regular basis. We’d love for you to join us in our celebration!
