EMPOWERING THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS
Teens are the future leaders of our community and at the Y, we ensure we’re giving them the power to succeed. Through service learning opportunities, leadership clubs and drop-in Teen Centers where everyone is welcome, we’re creating an inviting and inspiring atmosphere for these young adults to thrive.

Summer BOLD/GOLD Adventures
Students in their junior year will be selected from several high schools on the North Shore of Massachusetts to participate in weeklong adventure based leadership trainings. Each group of boys and girls will be made up of a mixture of students from various high schools, not to include more than two students from the same school on the same trip. There will be a reunion of all trip members with a slideshow at the end of August/beginning of September to remind students of their responsibility to bring their new leadership skills back to their respective high schools and get them pumped for the school year.
