The Lompoc Family YMCA has partnered with Lompoc Unified School District to provide free teen membership to all district-enrolled students in middle and high school as part of a wider effort to engage teens with healthy and safe enrichment activities.
Through the program, teens will have access to the YMCA's facilities that feature state-of-the-art fitness equipment, a basketball court, and teen-friendly fitness classes.
Additional enrichment opportunities will be offered later this year, a YMCA spokesman said.
"At the Y, we recognize the challenges in our community and we continue to work at being a leader in Lompoc by helping to deliver solutions for individuals of all ages," said Tommy Speidel, Lompoc Family YMCA regional executive director. "Providing fitness and safe programming options for teens is critical right now in our community."
