Why should you volunteer for the YMCA?

We can offer a variety of volunteering opportunities for people of all ages and across all areas and services, such as childcare, youth work, facilities, storytelling, and administration.

We have a standard recruitment procedure in place to ensure that volunteering is safe and well-managed for everyone. We provide volunteers with a training package that has been developed around each of our one-off, part-time and full-time volunteering roles. Once you have applied to volunteer with us, we’ll keep you fully informed about our recruitment and training packages.
