Leadership Program for Teens

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

Teen 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 provide service to the community. In addition to teaching teens leadership through service, Leaders Club advisors:

  • Introduce teens to all the work the Y does to strengthen community.
  • Inspire and prepare teens to become future Y leaders.

Tampa YMCA Teen Leadership Program

Our goal is to challenge teens to serve the community, and to help them grow in who they are and how lead those around them. The YMCA Teen Leaders Club program is available at every Tampa Y family center.
