Get Involved with Our Cause
Volunteers are the backbone of our organization. Without volunteers we could not provide our community with the extensive services and programs we currently offer. Volunteers provide essential assistance in the administration of each department division, serve on committess, work with staff to meet the needs of our members and participants, and provide many other valuable contributions to the organization.
Our YMCA offers year-round volunteer opportunities for members and non-members from the community and surrounding areas to give back and help build a better community within our Y. Opportunities range throughout the year and are based upon need within a program or department. Our manual is designed to guide and assist Volunteers and Volunteer Supervisors to effectively share the message of the Y.
Plan to volunteer and get involved in making our community a better place. To request additional information, to volunteer or have a question answered, email Adrienne Payton, Events and Volunteer Director at email@example.com or call 252-638-8799 x234.
Volunteer, Make a Difference
Aquatic Program Assistant Volunteer
The TWIN RIVERS YMCA teaches over 2,400 children water safety education and swim instruction each year. Volunteers help make this life-saving program possible. You can help! Volunteers are most needed Wednesday-Fridays from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. Must be age 13 or older.
Youth Sports Volunteer
Help coach a team or be a Program Assistant with any YMCA Youth Sports programs. No previous experience required. Teams just can’t run without our coaches or assistants – so you can feel great about making a real difference! Hours are based on program times. Must be age 14 or older.
Annual Campaign Volunteer
You tell great stories. So help us share stories of how the Y impacts lives in our community. You will help Y programs remain open to all by telling others how we’re “So Much More.” Hours are flexible. Age 18+
Wellness Center Volunteer
Give back to your community and make friends, too! Help ensure that Y wellness areas are welcoming and inviting. You’ll assist members with questions, maintain an organized and clean center, and create a friendly and engaging space for all.
Membership Greeter Volunteer
People who love to interact with others are perfect for this volunteer opportunity. Greeters welcome everyone who comes into the Y – creating a welcoming and friendly culture. Hours are flexible. Ages 14+ preferred.
Special Event Volunteer
We’re seeking volunteers to engage in a variety of community programs and outreach initiatives throughout the year, including: special events at Summer Day Camp, Pancake Pursuit, Indoor Triathlon, Turkey Trot, Christmas at the Y, and more. Just let us know how much time you’ve got and what’s in your heart – and we’ll help to make the match.
At the Y, we’re dedicated to strengthening community by giving back and supporting our neighbors.
And we know that members like you have lots of ideas and the desire to reach out to make positive changes in our community.
That’s why we invite you to participate in Togetherhood, a program that gives Y members the opportunity to select, plan and lead meaningful community service projects that benefit people and organization right here in our neighborhood!
Togetherhood invites members to participate in the Y’s cause to strengthen community. Collecting school supplies, donating blood, or running a park clean up are just some of the countless ways Y members and their friends and families can come together in service to their community.
Neighbors and community partners are engaged in our cause and work side by side to identify and address community needs.
Members enhance their well-being, forge new friendships and discover a greater sense of purpose.
Ys can better demonstrate their community benefit as a charitable organization.
The Y nurtures meaningful friendships among people from diverse backgrounds to contribute to a stronger and more inclusive society.
