Sue Scheff: YMCA Offers Teen and Youth Programs

Many people are not aware of the vast services and resources the YMCA offers. In Broward County you will find kids programs, summer camps, educational events, teen and youth programs, lecture series and so much more.

As summer is soon approaching and many teens will have extra time on their hands, it is best to get their summer plans organized. Do they need community service hours? Are they interested in becoming a CIT (Counselor in Training), or do they want to participate in the vast list of activities the YMCA has planned?

The YMCA recognizes the importance of creating a positive, safe environment for youth and teens in every community. We offer an outstanding variety of programs designed to encourage children to grow to their full potential. By learning about themselves and others, they learn vital life skills and avenues of expression that they might have otherwise overlooked. Each program or activity is focused on developing the spirit, mind and body; stimulating creativity; offering challenges; building developmental assets; and of course, fun! - YMCA Youth and Teen Programs
