YMCA Jr. Achievers

We are taking our high school program to middle school as we provide area students with the guidance and support they need to discover their identities, embrace their passions, and become their best selves.

Y Achievers is a national academic achievement and career development initiative of the YMCA of the USA with a purpose to help youth set and pursue high educational and career goals, resulting in graduation and acceptance to an institution of higher learning. We are now moving this program to the middle school level to serve students in grades 6 - 8.

5 Pillars of Achievers:
College Knowledge
Positive Relationships
Life Skills
Positive Identity

Programming Includes:

  • Tutoring and mentoring support

  • Leadership development opportunities

  • Career exploration and empowerment workshops

  • College and scholarship application tips and practice

  • Community involvement and service projects

  • Friendship, fellowship and much more!
