Leadership & Volunteer

The Y is for everyone. Our programs, services and initiatives enable kids to realize their potential, prepare teens for college, offer ways for families to have fun together, empower people to be healthier in spirit, mind and body; prepare people for employment, welcome and embrace newcomers and help foster a nationwide service ethic. And that's just the beginning. 

Adventure Guides

During their elementary school years, children learn rapidly, becoming much more aware of the world around them. The  Adventure Guides program assists parents and their children on a journey of discovery. With their group circles, participants will experience teamwork and adventure through campout activities, soccer, hockey, circle meetings and more.
