Youth Education Programs

At the Y, we believe in building future leaders through youth and adult programs that engage and inform our area. Supporting youth education is vital; the YMCA provides a wide array of special interest programs for our members to learn these skills.

Youth education programs such as Youth and Government help teach future young pros the basics of government. It connects them with devoted adult volunteers who care deeply about their education.

Youth education is the first step to new chances to learn. Our programs seek to engage members by building exposure to new ways of thinking in a safe, supported climate. We are sworn to growing friendships, strengthening minds, and building character for our members.

Whether you enjoy teaching or learning, our education and leadership programs at the Y can help bolster new interests and sharpen skills. Special schedules and programs vary per branch. Find out what programs are at a Harrisburg Area YMCA branch near you!

Child Safety

At the Y, child safety and protection is our number one priority.  Our goal is to help educate parents and children on how to be safe from child abuse in any environment with the skills they learn at our Y.  Our team is trained in comprehensive and innovative practices around child safety to ensure your children are safe in our care.
