Registration Policies

Scholarship/Fee Waiver

Illinois Action For Children Funding

Forms available at our Member Service Desk along with local offices. Action for Children (AFC) is a child-care financial assistance program provided by the Illinois Department of Human Services for low-income, working families. If you are a new applicant, you are required to meet with a designated YMCA staff member before registering for camp. You may pick up applications, re-determination forms and change-of-provider forms at the YMCA. DHS Child care subsidy can take up to two months to give approval; you must plan accordingly in order to have approval before the first week of camp. Please turn in all paperwork by April 1, 2019 in order to have approval. For more information please contact Therese Abboud at 847.410.5403 or at tabboud@ymcachicago.org

Financial Assistance

It is the goal of the YMCA to provide education, social and physical development services to people regardless of their ability to pay. Waiver or reduction of fees is available, subject to facility and program capacity and demonstrated need, without regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, physical or mental handicap. Scholarship applications will be accepted through May 15 and will be reviewed after that date.  Scholarships are only available to Family Memberships.

We require all families in need of financial assistance to first request funding from Action for Children (AFC). If a family is denied AFC funding, they are then able to apply for the financial assistance scholarship that the YMCA offers. Applications are available at the YMCA and online. Applicants are required to bring AFC denial letter and submit it with scholarship application or they will not be considered for the financial assistance program.
