CARL CHAVIS YMCA OFFERS ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS FOR HIGH SCHOOL TEENS

 Carl Chavis YMCA has two wonderful programs specifically designed for high school teens-the Minority Achievers Program and the Youth and Government Program. The Minority Achievers program is an academic achievement/career development program designed to assist high school teens of color with establishing and meeting high academic and career expectations. The mission of the program is “to help teens of color set and pursue high educational and career goals resulting in graduation and acceptance to an institution of higher learning”.  The program also focuses on character development and building of their self-esteem, while strengthening positive traits such as caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Teens will have the opportunity to be mentored by professionals in various fields such as lawyers, educators, real estate agents, entrepreneurs, and more.  This program meets once per month.  A four year scholarship is awarded each year to an eligible graduating senior participant.

The Youth and Government Program is designed to promote leadership skills, character values and civic engagement in teens. The program gives teens an opportunity to learn firsthand about government and civic issues by taking an active role in the democratic process, boosting youth development and contributing to a stronger community.  It helps to develop critical thinking, strengthens interpersonal communication skills, and raises awareness of and engagement in community issues and their possible solutions.  By participating in the Youth and Government program, teens are able to participate in both preconference training experiences and a statewide conference, during which they play the role of a critical civic leader, debating and finding solutions for current issues in their communities.  This program will meet twice per month to learn the processes and prepare for the State Conference held in Raleigh, NC.

Registration is still open for both the Minority Achievers Program and the Youth and Government Program.  Registration forms can be picked up at the Carl Chavis YMCA, 2757 Granville Street, High Point, NC. For more information in each of the programs, contact Shanette Jenkins at (336) 434-4000 or via email at sjenkins@hpymca.org.  You can also visit the website at www.hpymca.org/chavis.
