Teen Leaders Club
What is the Teen Leaders Club?
YMCA Teen Leaders Club is a program that brings teens together to develop group leadership skills, as well as allowing individuals to grow by building a healthy spirit, mind and body. Teens will meet on a monthly basis, in addition to other activities and/or volunteer opportunities.
One of the unique traits of Teen Leaders Club is that everything is run by the teens themselves. Even the meetings are run by the CAB (Club Advisory Board), consisting of a group of teens that are chosen by their peers to plan and organize meetings and monthly events.
Teen Leaders Club is an opportunity for teens to learn about leadership, get involved with the community and have fun with peers. Essentially, the club is what the group makes of it. Under the supervision of YMCA staff and volunteers, teens can make Leaders Club exactly what they want it to be!
55 Years of Excellence
The purpose of the school is to bring Leaders Club members together for training that will help them to develop new skills and grow as individuals.Through courses and group discussions led by YMCA Professionals and volunteers, participants will be given the opportunity to learn more about themselves and others while gaining new friendships and being a part of new experiences.
What Does the Teen Leaders Club Do?
An opportunity for teens to meet new people, while hanging out in a fun atmosphere at the YMCA, these meetings are run by the CAB, which consists of a Club President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. These positions are filled by teens who are elected by their peers. During meetings, club members decide which events to participate in that month, such as volunteer and social opportunities.
