TEEN PROGRAMS

MIDDLE SCHOOL (GRADES 6–8)

Our goal is to provide boys and girls in sixth, seventh and eighth grade with a foundation for healthy living through fitness and nutrition. Teen members will have the opportunity to participate in programs inside the Y while following Covid-19 guidelines, including wearing a mask and physically distancing. “Teens at the Y” will have space in the lobby for unprogrammed social time to play games or do homework and will be offered a FREE healthy snack.

  • Teens in grades 6, 7 and 8 must sign up and check in for the “Teens at the Y” programming.

  • Registration is ongoing and must be completed in person at the Y with a parent or guardian.

  • Questions? Contact Karen-Ann Hagar at khagar@clcymca.org.

Y HIGH SCHOOL TEEN LEADERS CLUB

Upcoming Community Volunteer Opportunities: Monthly Kids Night Out, Fill the Y Bus Food Drives, high school junior and senior chaperones for YMCA teen dances.

Y MIDDLE SCHOOL TEEN LEADERS CLUB

The CLC Y Leaders Club is designed to introduce youth & teens, grades 6–8, to service learning, volunteerism, social interaction and appreciation for diversity through the focus areas of the YMCA. Youth become leaders through service learning. Growth is fostered by allowing them to identify values and understand how they connect with society as a whole through giving back to the community in tangible, community-building ways.

  • Hosted at the CLC YMCA after school every Wednesday.

  • For more information contact Youth, Teen and Outreach Director Karen-Ann Hagar, at khagar@clcymca.org.

TEEN BOOK WARRIORS YMCA

Teen Book Warriors is a book club designed by teens for teens. In each 6-week session, teens will collectively vote on a book or two of interest. The readers will meet weekly outside the Y to explore the chosen book.

YOUTHFUL NOISE

This program works with LCTV and is open to high school aged residents of Lincoln County. Members of Youthful Noise are invited to become important collaborators, decision makers, and producers at the studio by learning telecommunications technology, serving on our Youth Advisory Board, and creating their own original programs. Youthful Noise is partnering with CLC YMCA this fall to film cooking shows at the FARMS kitchen. Later at the LCTV studio, teens will learn how to edit and broadcast the shows on television and the internet. We are looking for teens who are ready and able to make a commitment to hands-on learning and working as a team.
