YMCA of Southeastern North Carolina

Youth Programs

It can be hard to figure out your place in the world. As a young person with your whole life ahead of you, having the right guidance and support can make a real difference in figuring out who you are and what you can achieve. At the Y we work every day to help children and teens achieve their goals. Millions of youth nationwide gain confidence as they recognize the Y as a place where they belong and can feel comfortable exploring new interests and passions. Through our Youth Enrichment Programs such as Leaders Club and Girls on the Run, the Y makes sure that every young person has an opportunity to envision and pursue a positive future, and to take an active role in strengthening his or her community.


The YMCA and the Dance Cooperative are partnering to serve even more kids and families through dance!
