Staying active, developing healthy habits, learning leadership responsibilities and developing lifelong friendships—these are all areas the Y helps youth and teens excel in. Teens are a great resource in our community. They have talents and energy. They care about others. The Y has always encouraged teens to provide leadership with younger kids.

Youth Nights and Teen Nights dates, times, prices and activities vary by branch.
