Y Leaders (Ages 14-18)

Y Leaders club is a place for teens to learn leadership skills and connect to their community through service to others. Youth can choose the capacity in which they are involved. Whether it be joining in on our service projects or taking part in the planning process, our Leaders gain a lot through volunteering. Y Leaders meets at the 6250 S. Main Street Suite 112 at Southlands Mall. 

During our Wednesday meetings, young adults have the opportunity to be a part of planning and leading service projects. Using leadership and service learning curricula, teens will gain meaningful experience and leadership training. Y Leaders Club works closely on a Tobacco Free Parks, Trails and Open Spaces initiative with funding through the Tri-County Health Department.
