Boyertown YMCA

BBIN STEP WITH TEENS

From Fitness and Sports to Mentoring and Tutoring Programs the Y offers many programs and services for teens!

We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around our community are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

and high school students through hands-on experiences in the chambers of the Pennsylvania
Capitol.
