With the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility as our guide, we work with you every day to help your children have fun while realizing their potential.
It can be hard to figure out your place in the world. As a young person with your whole life ahead of you, having the right guidance and support can make a real difference in figuring out who you are and what you can achieve. Whether kids come to the Y looking to explore their interests, or for support in navigating challenges, the Y is committed to nurturing children and teens and roots for their success.
YOUTH IN GOVERNMENTThis program, for high school youth grades 9-12, helps to promote leadership and civic responsibility in the youth of our community. The Model General Assembly provides youth with an invaluable experience as future leaders of Virginia’s system of government. Youth learn the importance of citizen participation and public service.
