From board members to youth sports coaches to smiling greeters, volunteers are the heart of the Y. Hundreds of business leaders, community members, parents, teens, and so many more dedicate their time and talent to strengthening our local community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Becoming a volunteer allows individuals to give back and learn something about themselves in the process. After all, the Y is a nonprofit like no other. Get involved today!

All prospective volunteers must fill out an application and a background check authorization form. To apply to be a coach, click here. Then, call or stop by your local branch to find out more about getting involved with your YMCA.
