MAMARONECK, N.Y. – In a week of newly formed school boards, a group of 18 Mamaroneck students formed their own Teen Leaders Club with the help of the Hispanic Resource Center and Rye YMCA.

The Mamaroneck Teen Leaders Club have adopted a charter and bi-laws and held its first elections this week. The self-governed group of high school students will meet weekly to build leadership skills through volunteer activities.

“Our HRC staff is excited to partner with the Rye Y once again,” Zoe Colon, executive director of the HRC, said in a statement. “In the past, the Rye Y brought high quality fitness programs to the families we serve. We’re looking forward to this new venture that focuses on developing leadership skills in highly motivated teens.”

In an effort to further develop themselves and each other as leaders, the 18 students will hold weekly “values” focused on identifying where there is a need in the community and how to serve it.

“The students will set their own year-long goals, the club’s vision for the next several years and their own recruiting strategy,” Scott Umbel, club co-advisor, said in the statement. “They will have many challenges ahead of them; however, I’m immensely impressed with their accomplishments so far.”
