Youth Education & Leadership

Youth Leadership Programs

We provide programs for youth in middle school and high school to gain leadership experience, helping them grow through different opportunities within our Y and our community.

Leaders Club (Ages 14-18)

Leaders Club provides teens with extensive leadership training, offering opportunities for service within the YMCA and throughout the community. Leaders Club also serves as a recruiting program for future Y professionals. Teens between the ages of 14 and 18 are developed as leaders, fostering within them a culture of service in addition to knowledge and training that will help them better serve others and shape a healthy and productive life for themselves. As a part of the leadership training, each participant will serve as a monitor in our Open Family Activity Room.  One of the unique traits of Leaders Club is that the program is run by the teens themselves. Meetings are led by a Teen Advisory Board consisting of a group of teens chosen by their peers to organize meetings and monthly events.

Please note: If you are planning to become a CIT this summer at one of our camps this program is a prerequisite.
