Youth & Government
The Ohio YMCA's Youth & Government Program enhances development of the American democratic process for young people through participatory training in the theory and practice of the Ohio state government.
Teen Leaders Club
The mission of the Teen Leaders Club is to strengthen the community by instilling the core values of Honesty, Caring, Respect and Responsibility in teens through hands-on, real-life leadership activities, leadership retreats, and volunteering.
Ohio Rally is an annual Teen Leaders retreat held at YMCA Camp Willson in Bellefontaine, OH near beautiful Lake Mac-O-Chee. Over 200 Middle and High Schoolers will gather for a weekend of self-exploration and social activities that revolve around a central theme. Throughout the weekend, teens will have opportunities to meet other leaders from across the state, engage in traditional outdoor camp activities (ex. horseback riding, climbing wall, etc), and build friendships that will last a lifetime. Unplug with us for a few days as we grow into more purposeful and confident leaders!
