Get involved as a Y volunteer

Your time and talent go a long way

Every hour you spend as a Y volunteer translates into the caring attention a child or teen needs to grow up healthy and resilient. It translates into support for families so they can be successful and strong. Into healthier lives for people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities and incomes. Into a safer, more viable community that’s a good place to live and work.

As a Y volunteer, you can lead an exercise class, read to our Preschoolers, coach a basketball team, helping out at a special event, or simply just serve as a role model for young people. No matter how you devote your time, you’ll be working with other volunteers and Y professionals to make a difference in the lives of children and families in your community.

Volunteers are vital to the Y and help accomplish our mission. Without volunteers, the Y wouldn’t be able to meet the needs of the kids, families, and adults who live in our community. When we work together, our whole community moves forward.

Our Volunteers Enjoy:

  • A variety of programs to fit personal interests
  • Options for one-time, seasonal, and ongoing volunteerism
