What are Teen Programs?
Somewhere between becoming an adult and being a kid, a teen is discovering who they are and who they want to be. Often misunderstood, teens want us to know that they are growing up. At the Y, we know that teenagers will rise to meet expectations set for them, so we set our expectations high. Mentors, staff and other role models value our teens’ individuality and guide them toward becoming responsible and engaged adults.
