Chapel Hill - Carrboro YMCA - Leaders Club


Leaders Club is a national YMCA Program that provides middle school and high school students the chance to become and/or enhance their leadership talents through various activities and events throughout the year.

Teens involved in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Y Leaders Club will meet once a week (and on occasional weekends) to focus on developing leadership skills through youth development workshops, healthy living activities, and social responsibility opportunities. They will additionally have the option to supplement their leadership journey by attending other YMCA trips, a domestic mission trip, and an international mission trip.
