Teen Leadership

Teen Thrive programs are accessible to all teens, and can really make a difference—gain confidence, build life skills, give back to the community, make friends and more.

Y’s Start

This program helps middle schoolers connect with new friends and give back to our community through volunteering. Go on field trips, develop teamwork and leadership skills, plus plan and conduct service projects.


Achievers is a college-access and career-readiness program for those in middle and high school. Prepare for life after high school with guidance from mentors, field trips and goal-setting activities.

Youth in Government

Speak your mind and discuss today’s important issues in Youth in Government. All students in grades 8-12 are welcome, and financial assistance is available.
