Mission Volunteer Program
THE YMCA IS VOLUNTEERS!
• Volunteers are the backbone of our organization. Volunteers have played an active role in the
history of the YMCA. Without our volunteers, we could not provide our community with the
extensive services and programs currently offered.
• As a YMCA volunteer, you are a valuable member of our professional team. Working together,
our staff and volunteers are devoted to strengthen the YMCA’s common goal: the growth
and development of our members in spirit, mind and body and the overall betterment of our
community.
• Volunteers provide essential assistance by serving on committees and work with staff to meet
the needs of YMCA members and participants.
• YMCAs are first and foremost volunteer organizations. To put it in perspective, not every YMCA
has a building, but every YMCA has volunteers. All of the nation’s 2200 YMCAs are volunteer-
founded, volunteer-based, and volunteer-led. YMCAs exist to serve the community.
• Volunteering for the YMCA is fun, rewarding and gives a sense of belonging. Volunteering makes
a positive impact in the lives of others. There is not greater reward than volunteering.
• By becoming a volunteer, men, women and youth join hundreds of families and individuals of all
ages who are dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
• As a YMCA volunteer, you can help in aquatics, childcare, member service, outreach, sports, and
wellness. No matter how you help, you’ll make a big difference as you work with others to create
a feeling of connectedness in our community.
• At the YMCA, your time and talent go a long way. Every hour spent as a YMCA volunteer,
translates into the caring attention a child or teen needs to grow up into a healthy and
productive adult. 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.
