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. For more information about volunteering with our Y, email Marissa Zinni at email@example.com or call 252-638-8799 x239.
Marissa Zinni will be in contact with you within 48 hours for follow up once application is submitted.
Volunteer, Make a Difference
Youth Sports Volunteer
Teams just can’t run without our coaches or assistants – so you can feel great about making a real difference!
Coaches will assist children during Basketball to learn skills and abilities to allow them to excel in the sport. No previous experience required.
Friday or Saturday games will be required during the season. Once registration is complete and teams are set, a schedule will be relayed to volunteers via Andrew Kendall, Sports Director.
Turkey Trot Volunteer
We want YOU to volunteer and help make our 11th year TWIN RIVERS YMCA Turkey Trot fun and successful! Various positions are available leading up to and during Turkey Trot such as Packet Pick Up, Registration, Course Monitors, Finish Line Cheerleaders, Parking, and Kid’s Dash. Packet Pickup is held at the Y the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Turkey Trot is held at Taberna on Thanksgiving morning.
The Turkey Trot proceeds benefit the TWIN RIVERS YMCA Annual Campaign which helps provide financial assistance for the community to participate in Y programs.
