All youth have great potential. At the Y, we work every day to help them set and achieve their personal and educational goals. As a result, millions of children and teens nationwide gain confidence as they recognize the Y as a place where they belong and can feel comfortable exploring new interests and passions.
Here at Copley-Price Family YMCA, our teen programs provide teens a safe place to call their own and a chance to connect with positive role models and adults who care about them. Teen programs include youth development activities, leadership groups, community service projects, exposure to diverse career options, after-school activities, tutoring and mentoring, sports and so much more!
Copley-Price Family YMCA offers a variety of programs for teenagers ages 13 to 18 years. Our goal is to educate today's teens and build foundations that help them grow into healthy, confident, successful adults.
