Youth and Government is a “Hands-on” experience involving the state government for high school students. It is an educational program that increases awareness of the governmental process and develops skills in the areas of personal development, self-esteem, and leadership. Teens will learn and work on news reporting, writing, debating, and lobbying for or against bills.

The highlight of the program is a weekend long trip to Raleigh, where the students present and debate Bills in the State Legislative Building.

Opportunities

Privileges For Teens And Pre-teen Members

Teens, tweens, and everyone in between are welcome at the Y. Your membership is the first step to meeting new friends, playing sports, getting in shape to feel great and reaching athletic goals. We’ve created the following guidelines to ensure a safe, fun and successful environment for all Y members.

Middle School Members (Grades 6-8)

When you are with a parent or guardian, middle school members can be anywhere in the Y (including Wellness Center, gymnasium, pool, racquetball courts and track). If you are ready for a little independence, this Middle School Orientation and two uFit appointments will help you feel more comfortable in the building and help you reach your wellness goals. The Middle School Orientation and two uFit follow-up sessions allow you to use the Wellness Center without your parents, as well as participate in Group Exercise Classes where no weighted equipment is used.

What’s allowed?

With Middle School Orientation and two uFit appointments: Gym, Racquetball Courts, and track; pool after passing a swim test, Wellness Center, Group Exercise Classes (where no weighted equipment is used)

High School Members (Grades 9-12)

You are welcome to use most areas of the building including the Wellness Center, gym, pool, racquetball courts and track, as well as group Exercise Classes. Whether your wellness goal is making the high school team or feeling your best, set up a free Wellness Center Orientation for expert advice. We also offer classes on weight lifting, nutrition and Teen Strength training, which you can sign up for at the Welcome Center for an additional fee. Something else you’re interested in learning about? Let us know at the Welcome Center!

Latino Achievers

In collaboration with Crosby Scholars, we are introducing a community outreach program that focuses exclusively on the Latino population in grades 6-12. Our goal is to spread the message of both Achievers and Crosby Scholars to promote a “post-secondary/college going culture” among Latinos in Forsyth County. We anticipate that outreach efforts will result in participation in both programs, and ultimately ensure that students graduate from high school and cultivate the necessary soft-skill development to explore post-secondary options.

For more information, click here or contact Vivian Perez, Latino Achievers Program Director. Vivian can be reached at (336) 661-1093 ext. 6523 or (336) 448-3696.

Se Habla Español. Ponerse en contacto con Vivian Perez at (336) 661-1093 ext. 6523 or (336) 448-3696.


Black Achievers

The YMCA Black Achievers program is an academic achievement and career development initiative for middle school and high school youth and teens. The high school program is referred to as the Black Achievers Program and the middle school program is referred to as Youth Achievers, although both are operated under the umbrella of the Black Achievers Program. The name “Black Achievers” represents and describes the historical origin and mission of the program. However, today, the YMCA Black Achievers program is like the national YMCA movement, multi-racial and the Winston Lake Achievers program currently consists of students of numerous racial and ethnic groups.

Learn more about the Black Achievers program.

To become a Teen Achiever or an Adult Achiever, please contact Megan Mills for more information at m.mills@ymcanwnc.org or (336) 661-1093.
