The YMCA cares about teens. The YMCA cultivates teen leaders. The YMCA creates opportunities for teens to contribute to their communities.
Y teen programs partner with families, schools, businesses, and the entire community to help provide brighter futures for young people. Our YMCA gives teens a safe place to call their own and a chance to connect with positive role models and adults who care about them. Teen programs include youth development activities, leadership groups, community service projects, exposure to diverse career options, after-school activities, tutoring and mentoring, sports, camping, strength-training, and fun, recreational events.
The Y’s High School Summer Camp Internship is a newer program that consists of 20 high school students working with younger youth in a camp setting; teaching reading development and strategies. The goal of this program is to provide high school students with a chance to explore future career options and gain work experience, helping to better define their future goals. The Y’s internship is a temporary job position that provides invaluable work experience and on-the-job training in the fields of child and recreation development.
Prepare your 7th and 8th graders for the next step. Join the Y Jr. Internship Program where youth learn confidence,
