Other specialty programs for youth and teens require registration and additional payment. Members receive a reduced rate for these programs. Teens in grades 9 and up are welcome to join a regularly scheduled Group Fitness class. See our Schedules page for more information.  


These recreation classes are designed to offer opportunities for physical activity, time with friends and healthy fun! Some programs are free for members. Other specialty programs require registration and additional payment. Members receive a reduced rate for these programs. 

Leadership Development Series

Think about the last person with whom you had a conversation. Can you remember the color of their eyes, or were you stuck staring at the back of their cell phone?

Traditional communication skills are extremely critical for success, especially when social media and mobile devices consume so much of our time and energy.  Southern District YMCA's mission includes positive youth development; we believe that development looks a little different with the introduction of technology.

Exeter Area YMCA has partnered with The Voice Library to create a program that teaches teens, ages 13-18, critical communication skills in a fun, engaging, technological way. Through our 7-Week Leadership Development Series at Exeter Area YMCA, industry professionals will help your child engage with the world and learn to verbally express themselves--whether for upcoming college searches, for job interviews, or simply for face-to-face conversations!
