We believe young people are catalysts for change in the world, so we offer leadership programs and activities to lift up their voices and support them in their efforts to create positive change!
The Atlanta YMCA teen program mission is to build and support the strengths of our youth, specifically teens, by providing the necessary tools, resources and educational experiences needed to navigate adolescence, to prepare them for adulthood and, ultimately, put come on a path to successful and fulfilling lives.
Throughout the year, Y Teens have the opportunity to engage in:
- Leadership Programs
- Civic Engagement Programs
- College & Workforce Readiness Special Events
Or, contact your local YMCA to find out more about the teen programs offered near you.

She has been to Blue Ridge Leaders School five times and is excited to get her official sixth-year jacket this coming summer. At her most recent trip to Blue Ridge Leaders School, Sammy was nominated by her peers to be an Honor Leader with four other teen leaders from across the country. The YMCA of Metro Atlanta sends teens to the Blue Ridge Leaders’ School on Black Mountain annually.
