PROGRAM OFFERINGS

Esports

Esports leagues have arrived at the YMCA! This summer, join us for the inaugural season of YMCA Esports. We plan to offer leagues for Rocket League and Super Smash Bros for ages 11 - 15.

Players will form teams and have one practice and one competition each week. There is also an opportunity to play against teams from other YMCAs in North Carolina and across the United States.

Leaders Club

Make a difference through YMCA Leaders Club, a leadership development community service program that helps teens discover their full potential. It is a safe place where teens can come and simply be themselves.

Lightner Y Achievers

The Clarence E. Lightner YMCA Achievers program introduces teens in grades 6 - 12 to adults of color who guide them through experiences that prepare them for life after high school. Through civic engagement, community service projects, and academic enhancement programs, students make new friends, learn healthy lifestyle choices and prepare for their future.

Middle School United Nations

Middle School United Nations (MSUN) is a program for students in grades 6 - 8 to learn about global issues. Students assume the roles of diplomatic representatives to the United Nations as they consider contemporary international concerns. Through role-play, students gain a greater understanding of world problems and the complexity of international relations.
