An opportunity for teens to meet new people, while hanging out in a fun atmosphere at the 
YMCA. During meetings, club members will learn leadership skills, discuss real life issues, 
plan for upcoming volunteer events and join in social opportunities. 

Teen Leaders Club is a national program that gives teens an opportunity to gain real-life, hands-on leadership experience through Volunteer Opportunities and Trainings at the Y, Planning and Executing Community Service Events, and weekly Club meetings.

The mission of the Teen Leaders Club is to strengthen the community by instilling the core values of Honesty, Caring, Respect and Responsibility in teens through hands-on, real-life leadership activities, leadership retreats, and volunteering.

One of the unique traits of Teen Leaders Club is that everything is run by the teens themselves. Even the meetings are run by the CAB (Club Advisory Board), consisting of a group of teens that are chosen by their peers to plan and organize meetings and monthly events.

Members will…

  • Set and achieve personal and group goals, while increasing self-awareness and an understanding of teamwork
  • Develop problem-solving, decision-making and communication skills
  • Develop an increased understanding of and comfort with persons of diverse backgrounds
  • Explore relationship skills such as empathy, sensitivity, trust and peaceful conflict resolution
  • Explore leadership styles and effective leadership skills
  • Learn that their actions have an impact, that they are valued and that they can and will affect their future
  • Build meaningful friendships and have fun participating in new, exciting and challenging experiences
Teen Leaders Club is for anyone, grades 6+, looking to have fun, learn, and serve the community. 
New members are always welcome!  You do not need to be a member of the YMCA to participate.
We are in search of an adult adviser to volunteer and mentor this small group of teens from our Marysville community

Skills Preferred:

  • Availability to supervise meetings either weekly or biweekly and help teen members plan monthly service projects
  • Experience with the teen age group, either personally or professionally
  • Confidence in performing as a cause-driven leader through facilitating discussion, encouraging creativity from club members, and establishing a well-organized agenda and timeline
  • Belief in the YMCA’s core values of Honesty, Caring, Respect, and Responsibility


The YMCA, and Teen Leaders Club, is open to all.  Regardless of gender, 
sexual orientation, race, color, national origin, age, religion, disability, 
military status, and socioeconomic level.  A key component of Teen Leaders 
Club is educating and enabling teens to understand and be comfortable 
around others of diverse backgrounds, while also exploring their own identities.

Did you know?

Today's teens will be making the majority of societal choices 
and make the most impact on culture in the next 15 years. 

20% of teens will experience depression before they reach 
adulthood. Involvement with other peers in a positive 
environment, and building leadership skills, 
can boost self esteem and reduce depression/anxiety.
