Leaders Events


Somewhere between being a kid and becoming an adult, a teen is discovering who they are and who they want to be.

At the Y, we know that teenagers will rise to meet expectations set for them, so we set our expectations high. Mentors, staff and other role models value our teens' individuality and guide them toward becoming responsible and engaged adults.

We want teens to explore their possibilities and think big. The Y offers programs that promote personal responsibility, character development, leadership and community involvement.
