Y ACHIEVERS PROGRAM
We prepare youth for life beyond high school.
The Madison Area YMCA’s Y Achievers program is an academic achievement and career development initiative for teens in grades 8-12. Incorporating the Y’s Four Core Values of honesty, caring, respect and responsibility, and an evidence-based curriculum based on the Five Pillars: academics, college knowledge, positive relationships, life skills and positive identity, this program succeeds when students of all races, genders, and sexual orientations are encouraged to have a safe space to learn, grow and thrive. Through Y Achievers, we provide developmentally based, extracurricular team mentorship and workshop activities, designed to give teens the tools they need to succeed in college and beyond. Teens learn what it takes to become a leader. Y Achievers goes beyond the classroom, as we develop the individual talents, academic & leadership capabilities of each participant while instilling a greater sense of self–confidence, identity, inclusiveness, diversity and building positive relationships.
When: Wednesdays 6-7:30PM
Where: Boszhardt Family Teen Center
All communications for our Y Achievers program are available in both English and Spanish.
