Teens – The LINK

 ~

ALL TEENS ARE WELCOME!

The Y is expanding The Link to encompass all aspects of Teen programming. The Link provides a foundation for local youth to develop and cultivate the values and life skills that lead to positive behaviors, better health, and educational achievement. By bringing Teens together, we engage their interests, share adventures, and strengthen relationships. Teens create memories, build confidence, and develop a sense of belonging through exploring interests and passions at the Y. We are committed to helping Teens be the best version of themselves.
