SERVE WITH FAITH; LEAD WITH CONFIDENCE; INSPIRE TO IMPACT LIVES
Philippians 2:3-4 “Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests but also for the interests of others.”
What does the Teen Leaders Club Do?
Leaders Club is an opportunity for teens to meet new people, while hanging out in a fun atmosphere at the YMCA. During meetings, club members will learn leadership skills, discuss real life issues, plan for upcoming volunteer events and join in social opportunities. Leaders are a part of the planning and executing of Y special events. Fun networking opportunities are available through weekend leadership retreats (e.g. YMCA Camp Willson) and counselor-in-training programs
Attend monthly club meetings the 3rd Thursday of each month, 5:30pm to 7:30pm (Sept. 15, 2022 through May 18, 2023)
Jr. Leaders: Ages 10-12
