YMCA youth programming isn’t just kids stuff. We have an expanding array of offerings for the tween and teen in your life. From before school to Friday night, the Y offers fun, engaging, character-focused programs developed specifically for young adults.

Our caring, dedicated staff is there to listen to participants and help them navigate the stresses, changes and choices that come with adolescence. Building relationships with these responsible adults and with other young people from different backgrounds help give preteens the inner strength to avoid destructive behavior. Young people have more fun and learn more when they can take the lead in planning and directing their own programs, and the Y provides this opportunity.
