Teen Leadership Programs

Choose Your Program and Thrive At The Y


The Y invites teens in grades 8-12 to select from one of our varied programs that address the spectrum of social and emotional development needs. Each features a stratum of leadership, self-worth and self-discovery approaches that meets teens where they are.


The Y is the leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community by connecting all people to their potential, purpose, and each other. Working locally, we focus on empowering young people, improving health and well-being, and inspiring action in and across communities.

By bringing together people from different backgrounds, perspectives and generations, we ensure that we all have access to the opportunities, relationships and resources necessary to learn, grow, and thrive.
