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.
