Teen Programs

Today's world is a challenging place for teenagers. The Y provides a safe place where teens can cultivate their interests, develop leadership skills and nurture their creative and athletic passions.


The YMCA is looking for adult volunteers to lead the teen program and teen volunteers to serve in the community. 

Are you looking for a way to give back to your community? 

Teen and Adults can volunteer at TP Hill  to help keep our Lake community clean through our partnership with For the Love of the Lake on the Second Saturday of each Month.   We are also looking for Adults to help facilitate our Teen Action Councils at Lochwood and White Rock Hills Branch Libraries.  Teens can serve on the Teen Action council, be assistant referees/coaches, and even help with out Parents Night Out.

Contact Cassie McKee at   


Teens enjoy activities such as basketball, arts and crafts, board games, fitness, guest speakers, music and fun.  This is a great opportunity to meet other teens and find new areas of interest. Please register at the White Rock YMCA front desk.

"Thankful for the new opportunities Teen Action Council opened for me.  I've learned a lot, and have grown as a teen.  All the preparation and training has helped me socially and academically."
