Teen Staff Academy

Formerly the Youth Development Summit, Teen Staff Academy has been designed to meet the needs of staff who want to build a stronger foundation for their work with teens. 

The key focus of Teen Staff Academy is learning and discussing the core principles of three important YMCA programs – Achievers, Leaders Club and Youth in Government. For staff looking to start one of these programs at their local Y, Teen Staff Academy is an invaluable resource. The Academy offers fundamentals such as program budgeting, marketing, resources and staffing as well as peer networking opportunities.


Registration is open for the 2023 Teen Staff Academy taking place November 13-16. Learn more and register for Teen Staff Academy here.
