You have a lot to offer the YMCA: your time, energy and ideas. As a YMCA volunteer, you might lead an exercise class, mentor young people, fundraise, produce a special event or advise on local issues. No matter how you help, you'll make a big difference in the lives of people in your community.

More than sharing your time and passion, volunteering with the Y is about the satisfaction of knowing you are helping people and gainin valuable experience that can assist you in your own personal goals.

  • Health, fitness and recreation
  • Child, youth and family development
