For Youth Development
Through Meeting Waters Y's youth development programs, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
No two YMCAs in America offer exactly the same programs. Local volunteers run YMCAs. Part of their responsibilities is to develop and support programs that respond to local needs and conditions. YMCA programs are purposeful and structured. We call this Programs On Purpose.
All YMCA programs aim to help people:
- Grow personally
- Clarify Values
- Improve personal relationships
- Appreciate Diversity
- Become better leaders and supporters
- Develop specific skills
- Have fun!
The Meeting Waters YMCA offers a variety of programs for children, teens, adults and families. Our outreach continues to grow, so check back often to learn about new program developments. Click on the links to the left to learn more about our current program offerings in the Springfield region.
