YAS - Yellowstone Adventure and Service
The Lima Family YMCA is pleased to offer teens that have finished 9-11th grade by June 2013, a two week service learning experience in June 2013.
The program is designed to promote leadership development through service, youth-to-youth interaction and environmental experiences. It is educational in nature and requires a high level of commitment as each participant will be challenged mentally, physically and socially. By the very nature of this experience, teens must be able to exercise a higher degree of decision-making and accept responsibility for their own actions. the ten day experience is centered around learning about the wildlife and the geology of the Yellowstone region as well as being full of volunteer opportunities with the forest/park services.
Acceptance into this program will be selective. Teens must complete an application, gather references and complete a questionnaire. Teens who are a member of the Lima Family YMCA's Teen Leaders Club, Black Achievers and/or Youth in Government will be given preference in the selection process.
Informational Meeting: December 6th at 6pm at the Lima YMCA Annex.
