Making our community stronger requires people. Your local YMCA’s are volunteer-founded, volunteer-based and volunteer-led. That’s why we depend on volunteers to help meet the needs of our communities.

What volunteers do

  • Lead our Boards of Directors and committees
  • Raise funds to ensure the YMCA 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 YMCA’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
