Volunteer at the Y


Our community is founded on the idea of supporting each other. There are many ways you can get involved and utilize your talents with the Y. We offer internships and volunteer opportunities that can positively impact lives right in your own community. When you volunteer or intern with the Y, you are doing more than just sharing your time and passion, you’re helping your neighbors in the community become stronger.

Volunteers of the Y:

  • Lead our Board of Directors and committees
  • Raise funds to ensure the Y is accessible to all members of the community
  • Coach our youth in sports teams and teach 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

The Y is a nonprofit like no other. Take an active role in strengthening your community.
