Middle School Programs

Middle School Programs

Developed in partnership with the National Institute of Out-of-School Time, our Middle School curriculum offers comprehensive, engaging and age-appropriate learning experiences. Fun and educational, the curriculum inspires a thirst for learning and encourages students to nurture their own individual passions through Performance-Based Learning.

Links 2 Learning (L2L)

L2L  is designed to create new opportunities for local middle and high school students. Every L2L activity incorporates functions of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), such as logic, analytical thinking and problem solving. Additional program components include industry field trips, college tours, guest speakers and community service projects.

Youth In Government (YIG)

This is a YMCA program that offers students the opportunity to serve their school and communities as part of a a yearlong model government process. Students design bills around issues they are passionate about and present these at a yearly State Assembly, in hopes of being voted into law!
