YMCA of the Triangle

Header slogan


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.

Leaders Club is a year-long leadership-development program for middle and high school teens. This program provides teens with extensive leadership training and volunteer opportunities that support YMCA programs and services to the community. In addition to teaching teens leadership through service, Leaders Clubs advisors introduce teens to all the work the Y does to strengthen the community, and inspire and prepare teens to become future Y leaders.

YMCA Middle School Leaders Club serves teens in grades 6 - 8 and YMCA High School Leaders Club serves teens in grades 9 - 12. Clubs are hosted and meet at local YMCA branches.
