Teen Leaders’ Club

Lead to Succeed

Make a difference through YMCA Leaders Club, a leadership development community service program that helps teens discover their full potential. It is a safe place where teens can come and simply be themselves.

Leaders Club is a year-long leadership-development program for middle and high school teens. This program provides teens with extensive leadership training and volunteer opportunities that support YMCA programs and services to the community. In addition to teaching teens leadership through service, Leaders Clubs advisors:

• Introduce teens to all the work the Y does to strengthen the community, and
• Inspire and prepare teens to become future Y leaders.

Our goal is to challenge teens to serve the community, and to help them grow in who they are and lead those around them. Leaders Club includes weekly meetings, service and social events, as well as trips throughout the year including rallies, service work weekends, and Blue Ridge Leaders School.

  • Weekly Meetings
  • Volunteer Opportunities – members must complete at least 100 YMCA/community service hours
  • Fun Events – Trips, socials, trainings, weekly meetings, and rallies
  • Blue Ridge Leaders’ School – week-long physical fitness Training School.
