The YMCA Achievers Program is data-driven and strategically designed to develop individual talents and leadership skills, and prepare teens for life beyond high school. With a focus on 8th-12th graders, our goal is to support high school graduation, prepare teens for college and begin exploring career possibilities. Through a multi-faceted approach, Y Achievers incorporates the engagement framework of the Five Pillars and the Y Achievers Curriculum, based on the University of Chicago's 6 to 16.

"As a parent, the Achievers helped me be better prepared to support my son in the next steps for social and academic success in high school, college and life." -Margaret, Y Achievers Mom
