Through the robust offerings of our Ys, there are many opportunities for you to volunteer.
The generosity of others is at the core of our existence. When you volunteer at the Y, you actively bring about meaningful, enduring change in your community. As a volunteer, you’ll work with other caring, committed people who want to make a difference in your community. In addition to feeling great about your efforts, volunteers have the opportunity to:
- Experience personal growth
- Give back to the community through service to others
- Explore and discover a hidden passion
- Expand knowledge and skills through training
- Fulfill community service requirements for school credit
- Develop new relationships and make friends
- Gain community service experience to add to college, financial aid, scholarship, and employment applications
- Learn, grow, and HAVE FUN!
Volunteers are critical to carrying out our mission, so we ask our program volunteers to undergo an application and screening process similar to our paid staff members. This process ensures the best fit between the new volunteer and the program they are matched with while ensuring safety.
