Volunteers are vital to the Y. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to meet the needs of the kids, families, and adults who live in our community. Thank you for considering the Y as a place to donate your time and talents. We know that your time is precious, and we want every moment you spend with us to be worthwhile.
At the Y, we have opportunities for program volunteers and policy volunteers. To learn more about opportunities at your local YMCA, please contact Kelsey Krynock.
Why Volunteer at the Y
Across the United States, more than 500,000 business leaders, community advocates, parents, teens and individuals who want to give back and support their neighbors volunteer at the Y. That’s because in 10,000 neighborhoods nationwide we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise but deliver positive, personal and social change.
With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, Y volunteers give men, women and children of all ages and from all walks of life the resources and support they need to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.
