Clubs & Organizations
Y –club is a service club affiliated with the YMCA which promotes student service and participation in the democratic process and cultivates a sense of civic duty and social responsibility. As part of Y Club, students may also participate in the Kentucky Youth Assembly (KYA) which is a three day, hands-on experience of Kentucky's state government. KYA is a student-led conference in which teens experience first-hand what it's like to debate a bill in the capitol chambers, run for state office or argue a case in the State Supreme Court. In the Spring they may participate in the KY United Nations Assembly (KUNA) which also is a three day experience in diplomacy that encourages understanding and appreciation for our global community. Students confront international issues and offer solutions, celebrate cultural diversity and increase their sense of humanity through role-play as they represent member nations of the UN. Students in grades 6 – 8 may join.
