The Youth Activity Center


The Youth Activity Center will be open starting Monday, September 11, 2023.

The YAC will be closing at 5:30pm on Friday, December 1st for the Holiday Walk. Please contact us if your teen is interested in volunteering.

The Youth Activity Center is a FREE place for tweens/teens to socialize with friends, play games and receive homework assistance.  The center offers your 6th-9th grader an inclusive and fun place to visit, hang out with friends and even make new ones. . The Hopewell Valley YMCA Youth Activity Center is located within the YMCA Main Office at 62 South Main Street, Pennington and is open to students in the Hopewell Valley School District. Students can access the Youth Activity Center by walking from school, bus, or other means of transportation.  Your child can hang with their friends from 3:00 PM to 6:00PM playing ping pong, pool, foosball, video games, getting help with your homework, watching movies, playing outside activities, gathering on our porch, and much more!  The Hopewell Valley YMCA is able to offer this program for free from donations we have received from businesses and community members.

At the Y, we believe in the value of our youth. We offer various clubs to enrich the group of our teens. Additionally, your child can participate in unique club meetings, free of charge.  Club offerings will be announced soon.  Please keep a lookout for our exciting clubs.
