A major emphasis of programming at the Y is the healthy development of our youth. The Y offers youth development programs for kids from ages 0 to 17.
We view youth as assets to our community, each with unique strengths, skills and leadership abilities. All young people, regardless of ethnicity, gender, economic, geographic or religious background face choices that can positively or negatively influence their futures and the futures of our communities.
Through programs that give children and teens the opportunity to gain leadership skills, develop core values and an ethic of service, the YMCA empowers young people to make wise and healthy choices.
Under the guidance of well trained and caring volunteers and staff, youth learn fair play and positive communication and develop a spirit of cooperation - all skills necessary to succeed in their futures.
