Become a YMCA Volunteer!
Volunteers are at the heart of the YMCA and that is why the YMCA is at the heart of the community. When you are a volunteer at the YMCA, you are part of a not-for-profit organization with a vision of building Strong Kids, Strong Families and Strong Communities. Your time and talent will translate into helping a child, mentoring a teen or providing support for families. As a YMCA volunteer, you can lead an exercise class, read to a preschool class, coach a basketball team, cook for a bake sale, design a program brochure, greet people at the front desk, find items for an auction, serve as a role model for young people, help out in the office or at a special event, or be part of a group or committee working on a neighborhood problem. No matter how you help, you’ll make a big difference as you work with others to create a feeling of connectedness in your community. To help you choose an area in which you would be interested, the YMCA has established four categories of volunteers:
- Program volunteers – help to lead programs as an instructor or youth sports coach.
- Support volunteers – work in the office, front desk or around the grounds.
- Fundraising volunteers – raise funds through our campaigns (annual, capital, special or sustaining); work on endowment development; or work at/run special events.
- Policy volunteers – serve on the board of directors, on a committee or a task force.
