Education and Leadership

Education and Leadership programs emphasize knowledge, character development, guidance and encouragement to help youth realize their potential. Children and teens’ future success is fostered by caring adults who make them feel loved, competent, happy and healthy today. That’s why Y staff and volunteers are also mentors and role models, sharing a part of this very important—but very inspiring—responsibility in helping youth realize who they are and what they are capable of achieving. 

The Ann Arbor YMCA values its teen members and strives to present opportunities for them to learn, grow and thrive.  Click on the hot-linked titles below to learn more about these programs.
