VOLUNTEERS ARE AT THE HEART OF THE Y. We were founded by a volunteer and we continue to be governed by volunteers. When you volunteer at the Y, you take an active role in bringing about meaningful, enduring change right in your own neighborhood.
The YMCA hosts several one-day special events throughout the year where volunteers are always needed. These events include fundraisers and community service awareness efforts to support the Y’s initiatives. But they all have ONE thing in common…WE COULDN’T DO IT WITHOUT THE HELP OF VOLUNTEERS LIKE YOU! YOU can make a difference with only a couple hours a YEAR! Of course we show our appreciation to our volunteers by giving things like t-shirts, snacks and Y guest passes.
Special events are also a great opportunity for large groups to volunteer together, but work on different tasks that are of interest to them.
