Y Achievers


Y Achievers, a national YMCA program, serves students from varying academic levels in pursuit of high educational and career goals. Y Achievers helps teens improve academic performance, develop a positive sense of self, build character, explore diverse college and career options plus interact with professionals who serve as role models. With the help of certified teachers, we deliver an evidence based curriculum called 6 to 16. This curriculum helps young students to create pathways and build a plan to achieve their goals after high school.

We currently run programming afterschool at a few of our branch locations, and as a part of our new strategy, we also offer Y Achievers during the school day. In collaboration with the Career and Technical Education department (CTE), we offer YA programming to students as a part of their graduation pathway.
