Community Youth Services:
The "Branch Without Walls"
The Community Youth Services branch brings teen programs to communities by working with schools, churches and other community-based organizations.
Watch a video at left about the Teen programs offered through the Greater Cleveland YMCA.
Teens are an important part of our communities! The YMCA of Greater Cleveland believes in the positive development of teens through programs that teach leadership skills, develop character, provide positive social activities, and encourage community involvement.
Programs are based on a developmentally-specific program philosophy, with YMCA character development and asset building as a foundation.
The YMCA uses a planned approach to enhance four core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility throughout all its programming areas.
