COVID-19 Information

The COVID-19 situation is rapidly evolving. This is a new, and unprecedented, reality for all of us, especially those in people-facing service industries.  Due to this, we have temporarily closed a majority of our sites with an unknown date of when we will reopen so we are not actively recruiting for many of our volunteer opportunities. The active opportunities we do have, are listed as such below. 

As an applicant, you are important to us and we are still accepting applications. Please click here to submit an intent to volunteer with the YMCA. Please note that we may not get back to you right away but know that your resume has been submitted and will be viewed when we reopen.

Why Volunteer for the YMCA?

Volunteers make a significant contribution to our organization. They form the heart and soul of the YMCA. As a charitable organization our volunteers are ambassadors, providing us with a unique way to reach our members and participants.

We invest in our volunteers with area specific training, personal feedback, and the opportunities to demonstrate leadership, that gives our volunteers confidence they can apply in other areas of their lives.

Volunteering is more than just sharing your time and passion. It's about giving back to the community where you work and live.
