Teen Leaders, Grades 8-12
At the Y, we believe in the value of our youth. This group is for teens who wish to make a difference in their community. Group activities will be centered around four goals: Leadership Training, Personal Growth, Service to Others and Social Development. Teens will have the opportunity to participate in leadership development training, organize service projects, and grow as leaders. Our teen leaders help organize events such as the Pennington Holiday Walk, Timberlane Meet and Greet and more.
This is a teen organization with staff available for assistance. All planning and decision making will be the responsibility of the teens.
The Hopewell Valley Teen Leaders group meets 1-2 Wednesdays each month from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the Youth Activity Center (Y.A.C.) located at 62 South Main Street, Pennington, NJ.
