Helping Teens Learn to Lead Into the Future

Teens from Leaders Club get the opportunity to attend Blue Ridge Leaders School.

YMCA Leaders Club is 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. This is only possible because of you.
This program provides teens with extensive leadership training and volunteer opportunities that support YMCA programs and services to the community.
Each summer the teens attend a rigorous leadership school in North Carolina where they are challenged to grow and learn. The teens from the R.C. Durr YMCA had an amazing experience this summer and are excitedly planning ways to implement what they learned here at home.  This experience is impactful and life-changing for teen leaders.
Leaders Club fosters a love of community service in youth that carries with them into adulthood. Current YMCA staff member and donor, Elizabeth Day, was a part of Leaders Club as a teen and she shares how it impacted her life. Elizabeth said, “Leaders Club gave me role models who put service to others as the highest priority in their life. They believed in me before I believed in myself and pushed me to do great things. I am the woman I am today because of YMCA programs like Leaders Club and Camp Ernst.”
This program cannot exist without generous donors like you who believe in pouring into our future leaders. They want to thank YOU for believing in them.
