The Charleston Family YMCA Achievers purpose is to encourage young people to develop and pursue education and career goals with the assistance and guidance of mentors of diverse backgrounds and career fields. The program is open to any students in grades 8 – 12, but has a historical purpose of benefiting African American youth. There is no charge to participate in the program. This group is also involved in the YMCA hosted Black History Bowl, normally held in February or March each year. For more information, contact Celia Givens at 304.340.3527 x1134.
