LOOK FORWARD TO GIVING BACK
The volunteer opportunities listed below offer a broad overview of volunteer projects, but more specific opportunities are available on our Volunteer Portal to access the catalog. On our new volunteer platform, you will be able to manage your entire YMCA volunteer experience.
How to Sign up
Click below to take a look at our catalog of opportunities. Once you find and select an opportunity that fits, you will be prompted to create an account. If you’ve already registered on our new volunteer platform, you can also look at the catalog to see what’s new! We regularly update the opportunities as needs arise.
When searching for opportunities in the catalog, please make sure to select the branch you are interested in and put dates in the required “Opportunities On or After” and “Opportunities Before” fields. You will need to enter a date that is after today’s date to see the opportunities.
We believe that teens are a tremendous asset to our community. When they contribute their energy, passion and skills through volunteer efforts, they not only help to make a positive impact on the lives of so many, but they also gain the personal satisfaction of making a difference.
