volunteers needed

Volunteering is one of the essential ways the Y engages people and helps them to be healthy, confident, and connected to others.

The role of volunteers distinguishes the Y as a place where everyone can take an active role in bringing about meaningful, enduring change in the community. At the Y, volunteer development is everyone's job. A strong partnership between volunteers and staff is essential to operating effective and cause-driven programs. To achieve that partnership, Ys prepare for and manage environments in which staff and volunteers work together in clearly defined roles to advance the Y's cause. This requires everyone's commitment to provide meaningful opportunities for volunteers that match their interests and to ensure the operational and financial support to engage, manage, and recognize program volunteers.

At the Orrville YMCA there are many ways to get involved

We have regularly scheduled program like Child Watch, Swim Lessons, Senior Programs, and Youth Sports that need extra support. From time to time we have special projects like our Annual Campaign, Spring Spruce Up Project or Swim Team that need help for a specific period of time. Like doing yard work and are interested in keeping our mulch beds looking tip top - how about joining the Garden Club (new this May) and volunteering to maintain the beds over the summer to help keep the Y looking nice.

If you have an idea for a new volunteer project, let us know and we'll see what we can do to make your idea come to life. Thank you for taking in interest in volunteering at the Orrville YMCA, we appreciate you thinking about us and our community.
