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 or call 252-638-8799 x234.
