Teen Programs

Are you looking for something to do that's fun, different, and will look amazing on a college application? You're in the right place. Explore our clubs for leadership development, service trips and more.



Unfortunately, the YMCA has decided not to offer Esports this spring. We hope to be able to offer the program in the fall.


Esports leagues have arrived at the YMCA! This spring join us for the inaugural season of YMCA Esports. We plan to offer a middle and a high school league for NBA2K, Rocket League and Super Smash Bros.

Leaders Club

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

Lightner Y Achievers

The Clarence E. Lightner YMCA Achievers program introduces teens in grades 6 - 12 to adults of color who guide them through experiences that prepare them for life after high school. Through civic engagement, community service projects, and academic enhancement programs, students make new friends, learn healthy lifestyle choices and prepare for their future.

Middle School United Nations

Middle School United Nations (MSUN) is a program for students in grades 6 - 8 to learn about global issues. Students assume the roles of diplomatic representatives to the United Nations as they consider contemporary international concerns. Through role-play, students gain a greater understanding of world problems and the complexity of international relations.

YMCA Youth & Government

YMCA North Carolina Youth & Government (NCYAG) prepares teens for moral and political leadership through training in the theory and practice of developing public policy.

Teens can join Youth & Government through a Youth and Government club at their high school throughout the state of North Carolina.
