What we do--
Members of the John Hardin Y-Club are encouraged to participate in the club's school and community service projects. Our meetings focus on fun and fellowship.  

Y-Club members who are interested in state and federal government, as well as world affairs, may qualify to participate in KYA (Kentucky Youth Assembly) and KUNA (Kentucky United Nations Assembly)

Take a look at the YMCA's KYA & KUNA promo video.

Y-Club meetings at least once per month after school.  Meetings include friendship-building activities and community service education and projects.

Some of our favorite service projects are....Valentine Heart Attacks (showing some love to our teachers), welcoming new students to our school, Christmas goody bags for our bus drivers, Feeding America support, care packages to JHHS parents and graduates who have been deployed, assisting our JHHS seniors in registering to vote in partnership with InspireUS, and more!

The Student Y is registered with Inspire U.S.- a nonprofit nonpartisan organization which "inspires" students to become registered and informed voters.  See more at
