Time & Commitment
Being part of a Leaders Club is a commitment. Teens are expected to attend club meetings and activities as well as volunteer at their Y or in their community. A core part of the program is that teens take an active role in planning and facilitating club activities. Like many other youth programs the more time, effort and energy a teen puts into Leaders Club the more they’ll receive back.

The club’s meeting times are 6:30-8:00 pm every Wednesday during the school year at the Cheshire YMCA pending weather or a holiday. Volunteer opportunities and other events times vary but will be mentioned in an ample amount of time.
