Find Teen Programs & Activities
At the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis, we offer programs and activities geared to help teens gain personal growth, find their inner leadership, and to think beyond themselves through service to others and social development.
We want to create an environment where teens are able to recognize their potential and take the initiative to become involved in their community where they can make a difference. At the Y, teens have multiple opportunities to meet their educational goals as well as to learn the skills needed to become responsible adults and lead by setting good examples. But it’s not all work and no play for our Y teens as we afford time for recreation, socialization, and specially themed activities.
