How Do I Volunteer?

Our cause is strengthening community; with each of our Ys working tirelessly to nurture the potential of kids, improve the nation’s health and well-being, and give back and support our neighbors. When you volunteer at the Y, you take an active role in bringing about meaningful, enduring change right in your own neighborhood.

Our Volunteers:

  • Raise funds to ensure the Y is accessible to all members of the community.

  • Coach our sports teams and teach many of our classes.

  • Motivate and support youth in building the character strengths, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health, smart life choices, and the pursuit of higher education and goals.

  • Extend a hand to help adults who want to do more, be more or live healthier.

  • Advocate for the Y’s efforts to influence policies and initiatives that positively impact societal issues of importance to the nation and your community.

  • Participate in opportunities to give back and support neighbors.

  • If you believe in the Y’s mission and values and want to give back to your community in a meaningful way, we may have the right opportunity for you.
