A volunteer’s very nature helps root the YMCA to its identity as an association of people motivated by an ethic of service. The Y’s founder was a volunteer. In 1844 George Williams saw a community need and created the Y to help fill that need. A YMCA volunteer is defined as anyone who willingly gives time to help the YMCA accomplish its mission.
Types of Volunteers:
The people who serve on Y boards and committees, and those who act as trustees.
Those who have direct contact with Y members and people in the community. They help the Y deliver programs and services through opportunities like coaching, mentoring, assisting with the food program, and more. They may also help with membership.
Those responsible for the leadership and legwork that goes into successful fundraising campaigns and special events.
The people who help out in the office, in the facility, and on the grounds.
Togetherhood invites Y members to activate their social responsibility by participating in the Y’s cause to strengthen community. Togetherhood provides Y members with fun, convenient and rewarding ways to give back and support their neighbors.
Togetherhood is the YMCA’s Signature Program for Social Responsibility. This program invites Y members to lead and participate in volunteer service projects that benefit the community where they live. It is designed to be a simple, fun and rewarding way for members to identify ways that they can give back and support their neighbors through their own ideas, skills and energy, and the network of the Y.
