Bright from the Start exempt program

Of course, the YMCA has sports, but did you know about all the other fun activities available to teen members? Every season the YMCA offers a variety of new programs for teens to stay busy and have some fun. Make new friends, participate in community projects or just "hang out" in a safe and fun atmosphere. Our game room has a jukebox, Wii, pool tables, and ping pong tables. We also have a homework/reading room. We provide activities that shape values and encourage behaviors for a healthy lifestyle and community service.

After School – No Program Fee

6th -12 grade (must be 12 years old)

The Thomasville YMCA is committed to youth development through a variety of daily character-building activities. Our staff works as an extension of the family unit, reinforcing important values such as caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. All Y teens are expected to behave consistently with these core values.

We also offer organized games and volunteer opportunities during the school year.

A Teen huddle is held for youth followed by an activity most days.

We will assign each teen a locker if requested and ask the parents to provide a lock. With a large amount of facility traffic, teens are encouraged to put their belongings in a secure locker. Leaving belongings unprotected in the vending area and other common areas of the building is not advised.

Field Trips during teacher/student workdays and holidays for an additional fee. **15 participant minimum**

We are grateful for your confidence in the YMCA to provide a safe and positive place for your teen. Your cooperation and understanding of our policies will ensure a safe school year.
