Grow as a leader. Find your way. That’s the Blue Ridge experience!

YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly was founded over 100 years ago in Black Mountain, North Carolina as a conference center and mountain getaway, but also with a vision to be a leadership training center.  The Future Leaders program continues this legacy of developing leaders by furnishing valuable work and internship opportunities to college students, recent graduates and those still searching for their path.

Summer staff have the chance to learn and grow while acquiring valuable job skills and developing lasting friendships as they live, work and play in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, all less than 20 minutes from the creative music destination of Asheville, North Carolina.
