There are more than 100 Hi-Y, Tri-Hi-Y, Coed “Y” Clubs in 84 Georgia counties. The “Y” Club program provides thousands of middle and high school students with a school-based structured environment to develop leadership skills, understand the importance of civic responsibility, and enhance community through monthly school and community service projects. “Y” Club is open to all middle and high school students. The “Y” Club purpose is “To create, maintain and extend throughout the home, school, and community, high standards of Christian character.
Students participate in the Youth in Government program through attending Junior Youth Assembly (grades 6-8), Youth Assembly (grades 9-12) and Georgia United Nations Assembly (grades 7-12). We have had several students serve in official positions during these conferences, including Committee Chairman, Clerk of the House and Senate, House Doorkeeper, Speaker Pro Tem, Lieutenant Governor.
One of our fast growing community activities is our school’s Trunk or Treat, which began 5 years ago. The first year we had 8 cars for this event. In 2016 there were 30 vehicles and over 70 students who participated.
This year’s Y-Club sponsor is Leigh Upshaw.
