The West Side YMCA provides young people with a safe space to socialize, seek support and participate in activities that build self-esteem, prepare them for higher education and success as an adult. Our goal is to empower, inspire, and teach young people to be leaders.

College Access

Prepare for higher education with workshops, one-on-one work with teen advisers, and learn strategies for success in the future.

Career Readiness

Develop your professional skill set and expand your network with school-year and summer internship programs through the West Side YMCA.

Leadership Development

Learn how to become an effective agent of change in your community through leadership training, community service, and working alongside local leaders.


Work with a coach and take control of your physical fitness. Teens learn how to improve their fitness, strength and endurance in a fun and supportive environment at the Y through our fitness programs, and are empowered with access to the Y’s fitness center, swimming pool, and indoor basketball court.

Programs begin October 3 and run through May 2018. For more information on how to sign up and any program questions, contact our Teen Center department!
