LEAD TO SUCCEED
Make a difference through YMCA Leaders Club, a leadership development community service program that helps teens discover their full potential. It is a safe place where teens can come and simply be themselves.
Leaders Club is a year-long leadership-development program for middle and high school teens. This program provides teens with extensive leadership training and volunteer opportunities that support YMCA programs and services to the community.
In addition to teaching teens leadership through service, Leaders Clubs advisors introduces teens to all the work the Y does to strengthen the community, and inspires and prepares teens to become future Y leaders.
Our goal is to challenge teens to serve the community
and to help them grow in who they are but also how to lead those around them.
Leaders Club serves Middle and High school teens ages 12-18 years.
