Get Involved! Become a Y Volunteer

At the YMCA, your time and talent go a long way. Every hour you spend as a YMCA volunteer translates into the caring attention a child or teen needs to grow up healthy and resilient. It translates into support for families so they can be successful and strong. It can lead to healthier lives for people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities and incomes or you may be providing a safer, more viable community that’s a good place to live and work.

As a YMCA volunteer, you can lead an exercise class, read to a preschool class, coach a basketball team, greet people at the front desk, serve as a role model for young people, help out in the office or at a special event.  No matter how you help, you’ll make a big difference as you work with others to create a feeling of connectedness in your community.

All volunteers must be fully vaccinated and provide proof of their Covid-19 vaccination record.


Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Fitness Center Attendants — 2-3 hour shifts
  • Camp Big Bear Volunteers – July 15th – 29th
  • Group Exercise Instructors (yoga, zumba, cardio, etc.) — 1-2 classes a week
  • Youth Department Mentors (basketball league coaches & referees, tutors, instructors) — 3-6 month commitment
