Youth Enrichment Activities

Youth enrichment activities at the Y are based on building a better community for our youth. In Port Charlotte, we currently offer Y-Reads and Teen Club, more information is below!

Leader Club (Ages 12-18)

Leaders Club is one of the YMCA’s most intensive and comprehensive teen programs, designed for those who want to make an impact in their schools, in their community and within themselves. This program provides a safe haven for teens to become confident and competent adults with a sense of belonging in their community while promoting and enhancing the personal growth and social skills of young people in order to develop leaders who will be a positive force in their communities. By connecting with adult advisors, teens have role models and mentors who can have a positive impact on their lives.

The first meeting will be on September 20th, 2018 from 6-8pm. Application deadline is Aug 28th, 2018. More info here or Contact Jordan Jensen at 941.629-9622.
