Education & Leadership
It can be hard to figure out your place in the world. As a young person with your whole life ahead of you, having the right guidance and support can make a real difference in figuring out who you are and what you can achieve. Whether kids come to the Y looking to explore their interests, or for support in navigating challenges, the Y is committed to nurturing children and teens and roots for their success.


All kids have great potential. At the Y, we help them set and achieve their educational goals. They gain confidence as they recognize the Y as a place where they belong and can feel comfortable exploring new interests and passions. Through academic enrichment programs, we make sure that every child has an opportunity to envision a positive future, and to take an active role in strengthening the community.

Teaching kids to paint, write, sing, and act fosters self-expression, dialogue, critical thinking, and greater achievements in academia. Of equal importance, the Arts & Humanities calm and excite us and generate opportunities for inspiration and joy.

Just For You Dance


To support and encourage our youth, we offer training and programs that they need to further personal development and ultimately become role models who pursue and inspire positive community and environmental change. Youth will build confidence, feel pride and take a greater responsibility for their surroundings.
