As a community service organization, we depend on volunteers to assist with YMCA programs, special events and day to day activities. Many programs simply would not be possible without the assistance of volunteers. Thank you to all our volunteers.


  • Lead our boards of directors and committees
  • Raise funds to ensure the Y is accessible to all members of the community
  • Coach our sports teams and teach many of our 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.
