New York City’s YMCAWe’re here for good.

Teen Center

Over 30 different Y Teen Centers around NYC provide safe and secure places for more than 10,000 teens to go within their community to meet with friends, engage in positive activities and become involved in the culture of the Y under the direction of caring adults.  Every Teen Center is unique, but all run on weekday and weekend evenings and offer: recreation such as pool tables, ping pong, computer labs or video games;  sports leagues and open gym for basketball, soccer and other sports; health and fitness activities, including access to free weights and fitness equipment; academic support such as tutoring and homework help; counseling like applying to college or looking for financial aid to pay for college; and service learning opportunities such as volunteering.

To get involved in the programs listed below, please contact your local branch and ask for the teen director.
