Youth Programs

We believe the values and skills learned at an early age are vital building blocks for life. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

Youth in Government

YMCA Youth in Government gives youth the opportunity to learn firsthand about government and civic issues by taking an active role in the democratic process, boosting youth development and contributing to a stronger community.

Collegiate Legislature

At the Collegiate Legislature, the top student leaders from all across the state of Alabama come together to discuss the most important issues of the day in the states.


The YMCA Youth Conference on National Affairs offers opportunities for young people to research the area of National and International concern; organize the information into a documented proposal, and engage in intensive discussion with young people from other states.


The YMCA Christian Values Conference includes nightly mixers, uplifting morning songs and devotions, lots of free time adventures, and the chance to talk about what you believe with other students from all around the country.


The YMCA’s Learning Academy provides students with a safe environment for distant learning when they can’t be in school, and includes academic support and enrichment programs with a holistic focus. Students receive help with access to online learning and homework, as well as access to all of their favorite YMCA activities.

Youth and teens tutoring

Every Monday and Wednesday during the spring semester we will have Montgomery Public Schools High School students working with your student with their homework.
