Your Commitment...
By choosing to volunteer, you are making a commitment to yourself, to the YMCA and to your community. The length of your commitment is variable. You may choose to volunteer once per week over the course of the year, once or twice a month, or for a special event. Volunteer times range between a half hour to several hours per session – you let us know the amount of time that you are willing to give and we will find a way for you to get started.
