Y Leaders’ Club is a program where teens can be themselves and strengthen their leadership potential as they thrive in a fun environment of support, social activity and community involvement.

Enthusiastic teens will work together to organize and provide volunteer service in their community while gaining valuable knowledge, training and skills that will serve them well for life:

  • Improved self-esteem and leadership skills
  • Changes in behavior/outlook toward service to others
  • Enhanced commitment to education and personal growth
  • Understanding the connection between self-fulfillment and helping others
  • Resume building and more

If you're age 13-18 and you want to get involved in your community and surround yourself with other spirited, funny, hard-working, dependable, and positive teens... then Leaders' Club is for you!
