“All teens are special and have potential to be amazing leaders in their schools and community! Making those heart connections with teens is the key to unlocking that potential. Not only can they come to the YMCA to play games, get homework done or just chill, but they have the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives in the community through volunteering or being a part of a leadership team that helps to make decisions on Teen Trips or Events! I believe in every single one of those kids. I believe that they can be whatever they want to be and will go wherever they want to go, and at our YMCA we will help them get there.” - Jacob Lynn, Former YMCA Teen Coordinator
