Sheridan YMCA FUSE!

Who is FUSE! for? Anyone ages 11-17 interested in leadership development and training at the Y. Think you might be interested in becoming a summer camp counselor or LIT (Leader in Training)? This is the training for you.

Program Info

What is FUSE? Training for progression in and beyond the Y for youth that is:
     – Fun
     – Unified
     – Streamlined
     – Empowering

Our program is designed for youth development in and beyond the Y. Our curriculum utilizes an experiential (active and hands-on) approach to empower our youth as they expand their professional toolbox

What’s In Our Toolbox?

LeadershipPositive Relationships – Competence – Life Skills – Positive Identity

What can you expect from a session? Each session will focus on three things:

  1. Skills Development (first aid, CPR, workplace professionalism, etc.)
  2. Monthly Theme (interactive discussion) – Ex. Emotion Management
  3. Activity – We will have a fun activity every session that matches the theme. Youth may find themselves snow skiing, rock climbing, or hiking, among other activities!

When: FUSE! training will occur once a month leading up to the camp season. The length of each session will depend on the activity. Activities are subject to change depending on the weather. Please sign up online or at the Front Desk for sessions.
