Activate Youth

Activate Youth

Program Overview

There are 6 Activate Youth sessions throughout the year for youth 7 – 14 years old that are in need or want more physical activity in their daily routine. Activate Youth will provide children new ways of thinking when it comes to exercise, it will help them to make exercise enjoyable and something they look forward to! We have staff members dedicated to providing a fun, safe environment for children to exercise. Nutritional education is also included into our Activate Youth sessions through healthy snack creation classes and nutritionist led activities.


Activate Youth Success Stories

“My kids really enjoy the Y & the Activate Youth program. It gives them a chance to enjoy kids of every age level in structured and non-structured events. I am glad we have a place to come to with so many activities where my kids can be kids and feel safe.”

-Carol S.


“The program has been something for the kids, especially John, to look forward to and a program that motivates them. At the beginning of the year it was hard to get him to leave the house, let alone participate in activities. Now, he makes sure that he is ready to go and participate. This program has been a blessing in many ways. We have seen a big improvement in John’s social skills and his interest in becoming more active, social and leading a healthier lifestyle. A BIG thank you to the Activate Youth Staff!”

-Scott & Lori B.


Activate Youth has motivated my children to have a positive attitude. The girls’ energy levels have increased as well as their endurance to do more activities. Thanks to this program they play more as a team more than all about themselves.”

-Jamie G.

Program Mission

To help children achieve and maintain a healthy weight, decrease risk factors for disease, make smart nutritional choices, and adopt a fit lifestyle with regular exercise. In today’s world with all of the technology children are getting away from regular exercise. Our goal is to get our community up and moving and it starts with our youth! We are building this program to run throughout the year and encourage previous Activate Youth children to continue on in the program.
