Each day, every teen in the Snoqualmie Valley community has a place to go. At the Snoqualmie Valley Y, teens can hang out in the After Zone, daily from 3 to 5 p.m. for no cost. It's a time for youth in grades 6 to 10 to unwind from a long day at school—play Xbox, Ping-Pong, get help with homework, or just kick back and chill with old friends and new ones. YMCA staff will be present to answer questions and connect with teens on a daily basis.
