The YMCA's Youth & Teen programs cultivate a space for children to experience, explore, and engage with resources and people in the community to help the development of their minds, bodies, and spirit.


Middle School Transport

(5th - 8th Grade Y Members)
Looking to do something fun after school instead of going home? Hang out in the Lounge, do homework, shoot hoops, climb the rock wall or swim. The Y provides a safe, welcoming environment where middle schoolers can feel a sense of belonging and build positive relationships all while having fun after school!

Electronic Sports, or Esports, takes on the form of organized, multiplayer online video game competitions and is one of the fastest growing trends for youth engagement. The Y can be the best open and competitive esports league in the country for youth through a private, in person and online competitive program where kids and parents can be safe, moderated, and trained.

Committed to youth development, it makes sense that the Y is the ideal partner to support your homeschool efforts. Along with courses that challenge young scholars, we also offer engaging experiences that keep students active and help them build solid relationships.
