Volunteerism · YMCA of the East Bay
As the leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the YMCA of the East Bay is committed to bringing people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds together to benefit from the experience of supporting their neighbors and finding their passion through volunteering.
WHETHER YOU VOLUNTEER AT THE Y OR ELSEWHERE IN YOUR COMMUNITY, YOU HELP BRING ABOUT LASTING PERSONAL AND SOCIAL CHANGE.
No other organization impacts as many people as powerfully as we do everyday. When you volunteer, you nurture the potential of children and teens, improve your community’s health and well-being, and serve the needs of your neighbors. You become part of a team working to positively impact those in your community.
Volunteers Deserve Recognition
Get inspired by our 2015 Volunteers of the Year and Youth of Character!
Make a Difference in Your Community
At the Y, we understand that volunteerism is the cornerstone of a healthy community, strengthening those served, as well as the volunteers' own mental and spiritual well-being. We encourage you to coach, mentor, organize events or participate on the Board of Managers at your local Y. We also believe that stepping outside of the Y is equally important, let us connect you to one of our local partners with whom you can serve. No matter what your talent and interest, there is a place for you.
