The YMCA is all about Volunteering!

It was founded by volunteers, and continues to be led by volunteers, as well as based on volunteers. Unlike any other organization in the world, the YMCA brings together a diverse group of people of race, age, faith, gender, backgrounds and incomes.


As a volunteer within our membership department, you can welcome and introduce members, prospective members and program participants, assist with facility tours, and assist with mailings, bulletin boards and special events. Please contact your local branch for specific opportunities.

Bright Beginnings & Mentorship


By volunteering as a mentor, not only do you have build character, but you also build connections with the children in the community. You can be an After school tutor, Bright Beginnings Coordinator, or a Bright Beginnings Volunteer.

 Youth Sports Coaching


Be a volunteer coach or scorekeeper for all youth sports including basketball, soccer, flag football and T-ball. YMCA Sports Programs are year-round. Choose the season and be a volunteer coach or scorekeeper!  Please contact your local branch for specific opportunities.

YMCA National Swim Meet Volunteer


The YMCA needs volunteers who can help with the Annual YMCA National Swim Meet held at the GAC.  Hundreds of volunteers are needed to show the thousands of championship swimmers and their families some Southern Hospitality.
