At the Y, we take leadership development seriously. We believe that all youth have great potential, and at the Y, we work every day to help them set and achieve personal goals. Teens will build skills and confidence as they explore new interests and passions through Y.
Leaders Club is for 6th – 12th graders who are interested in volunteer work, spending time with friends and having fun. The club meets on Mondays. As a Leader, you will have volunteer opportunities to help others, work on community service projects, learn leadership skills, participate in special activities, and most of all, have fun! You also might be able to earn school credit helping people in your community. The program runs September through June.
