Teen Leaders Club

An afterschool club where teens develop leadership skills and learn about potential careers.

Leaders Club is a year-long, YMCA-based leadership development program for 8th-12th graders. It offers teens extensive leadership training and volunteer opportunities that support YMCA programs and community services. In addition to teaching teens leadership through service, Leaders Club advisers:

  • Introduce teens to the work the Y does to strengthen community
  • Inspire and prepare teens to become future Y leaders

Like all YMCA teen programs, Leaders Club is grounded in the Five Pillars, elements proven to help teens from across multiple dimensions of diversity reach their full potential and ensure they are equipped for success during life after high school.

The Five Pillars are:

  • Academics
  • College Knowledge
  • Positive Relationships
  • Life Skills
  • Positive Identity


YMCA members: $25/month

Non-members: $50/month (includes a Teen Membership)


Wednesdays from 4 to 6 p.m.
