Holiday Party (Dec. 16)

Teens enjoying get together
All members of the teen program are welcome to this festive get together on Dec. 16. We will have cookie decorating, Christmas movies, hot chocolate, and ornament making in the Makerspace!
Mondays: Leader's Club/Cooking Classes

Mondays offer alternating events: Leader's Club and Cooking Classes!

Leader's Club is held every other week on Mondays at 4. It includes service and social events, as well as a trip to Blue Ridge Leaders School!  This program provides extensive leadership training and volunteer opportunities that support YMCA programs and services to the community. In addition to teaching teens leadership through service, Leader's Club advisors introduce teens to the work the Y does to strengthen community, while inspiring and preparing teens to become future Y leaders.

On Mondays when Leader's Club does not meet, we offer cooking classes specifically for teens from 3-4:30 p.m.! Come have fun cooking holiday themed meals. Learn how to make easy afterschool snacks along with your favorite foods, while discovering the nutrition behind these foods. Teens also get to have a say in what is being whipped up in the kitchen next! 

NUGGETS of Wisdom: TUESDAYS 2:30-4:30 PM

We are rethinking how you imagine afterschool study hall! Chicken nuggets, TV shows, and good community are only the beginning of our Nuggets of Wisdom days on Tuesday afternoons. We bring a calming and laid-back atmosphere with yummy food for kids to bring any school work/homework questions. If you're stuck on a particular subject, our tutors can help! Nuggets of Wisdom is every Tuesday from 2:30-4:30 p.m. 

WEEKLY WELLNESS: WEDNESDAYS AT 2:45 PM AND 3:30 PM

This wellness time is for high schoolers to work out with two of our knowledgeable wellness coaches (DJ and Emilee). The group meets Wednesdays at 2:45 p.m. for boys and 3:30 p.m. for girls. Teens learn proper lifting technique, how to use different equipment in the gym, and how to reach attainable and healthy fitness goals.  The groups meet in the front lobby and head back to the gym together.

WEEKLY MAKERSPACE: THURSDAYS 3:00-4:30 PM

Teens can come utilize our Makerspace on Thursdays from 3-4:30 p.m. after school. We will have programmed activities that they can participate in which will help spark creativity in new and exciting ways.  Teens are also more than welcome to bring projects that they are working on or ideas that they are brainstorming during this time.  

WEEKLY PANCAKE FRIDAYS

Join us every Friday from 2:30-4:30 p.m. for pancakes and fun with friends!
