Meadville Family YMCA

Goal: $10,000.00

Specific Need

Leaders Club is a year-long, YMCA-based leadership-development program for middle and high school teens. This program provides teens with extensive leadership training and volunteer opportunities that support YMCA programs and services to the community. In addition to teaching teens leadership through service, Leaders Clubs advisers • introduce teens to all the work the Y does to strengthen community, and • inspire and prepare teens to become future Y leaders.  Volunteer leadership in YMCA programs is one of the exciting ways in which individuals grow and achieve their greatest potential. This is especially true for teens. Consider these findings: • Teens currently volunteer twice as much as adults • Teens who engage in service are 50 percent less likely to engage in risky behavior • Individuals with volunteer experience are 27 percent more likely to find employment than those without volunteer experience.  This is what we want for the youth in our communitiy.  We want to allow all youth the opportunity to participate our goal is to provide this program free of charge through scholarships funds to the youth in Meadville.

Mission
