This program is an 8-week leadership development program for youth ages 14-18 years old. Each week will focus on a main topic using team building activities, meditative and martial arts, short reads, art, music, journal entries and other facilitated conversations or “circles.” Utilizing these circle techniques, teens will be working on self-control, self-awareness, self-care, self-advocacy, and selfempowerment. Being aware of oneself can make a positive impact on building healthy relationships, developing leadership and teambuilding, and discovering one’s responsibility to their family and community. Each participant will receive a free day pass at the end of each session to work out, play  basketball, or swim.

With successful completion of the program, each participant will be gifted a free 6 month membership to the YMCA of Topeka. This program is provided at no cost thanks to a partnership with the Topeka Center for Peace and Justice.

Group will meet on Monday afternoons from 4:30PM-5:30PM.
