Leaders Club is a national YMCA program designed for those who want to make an impact in their schools, in their community and within themselves. This program provides a safe haven for teens to become confident and competent adults as they receive leadership training that enhances their social and emotional growth. By connecting with adult advisers, teens have role models and mentors who make a positive impact on their lives while teaching them the importance of social responsibility and service within the community. Weekly, they work on leadership skills, physical fitness and volunteer opportunities.
Mondays from 5:30pm-6:30pm
The great thing about Leaders Club is that it is student led! On a weekly basis, you should be prepared to workout, develop leadership qualities and plan our next volunteer opportunity. The Y does provide staff that will help guide the group towards a certain direction, and we do have a few planned volunteer opportunities already, but a large part of what we do is up to the kids! Do you want to plan a dance here at the Y for your peers? How about a trip to go white water rafting? The ideas are endless and are up to you! We are here to make it happen!
Aside from the fact that Leaders Club will help build your resume and help earn volunteer hours for your college application, Leaders Club will also provide its members with opportunities for leadership training, personal growth, service to others and social development.
