Hang out with a purpose

The YMCA Teen Leaders Club is a free program giving middle- and high-school-age teens opportunities to develop leadership skills, give back to their community through volunteer work, and have fun. Teens will strengthen skills centering on body, mind, and spirit. The year-long program includes volunteering, team-building, fitness, devotions, academic enrichment, and social events.

Once they have earned enough vounteer hours to qualify, participants also get to attend the Blue Ridge Leaders' School experience at the end of the year! Teens can be in Leader's Club as many years as they'd like.
