Service Learning Projects

Reflecting the national Y initiative of Togetherhood, we welcome our teens to volunteer and give back at our Y community. These are effective and powerful ways to encourage and foster leadership development, ability to collaborate with others and mentorship. Note, middle school and high school service hour requirements may be met through these projects. Contact Caitlin LaFleur for more information.
