Leaders Club

Leaders Club is a fun, active social and service club for ages 12–18 that focuses on preparing youth for life after high school. Guided by a staff advisor, teens learn and practice leadership, determining rules of engagement for their club and participating in volunteer service projects. Teens also stay active together and participate in fun adventure activities. Teens make friends and develop self-confidence, independence and cooperation.

Leaders Club runs from September through June, and teens can join at any point during the year.

Leaders Club is available at the following locations:

  • Blocker Norfolk Family YMCA
