Volunteering is more than just sharing your time and talent, it's about the satisfaction of knowing you are helping people become stronger, giving back to your community and gaining valuable work experience that will enhance your career opportunities.

Most Y programs rely on the assistance of volunteers to develop skills through modified, age-appropriate activities. Appropriate lesson plans and training are provided for the programs. This small investment of your time will have a great impact on the individuals enrolled in Y programs. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact your local Y. If you have a few hours to spare and would like to help carry out the mission of the Y, please complete the Volunteer Application and return it to the Member Services Desk at any YMCA of the Fox Cities location. To ensure the volunteer experience is a rewarding one for everyone, applicants will be contacted for a personal interview to discuss skills, experience, time commitment and any training required.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are at the heart of the Y. We were founded by a volunteer and we continue to be governed by volunteers. A great many of our programs for children, families and people with disabilities are only possible because of the incredible people in our community who volunteer their time.

There is something for everyone at the Y. Some examples of volunteer opportunities include:

  • Youth Sports
  • Child Care
  • Laundry and towel folding
  • Special Events
  • Fundraising
  • Governance

When you volunteer at the Y, you take an active role in bringing about meaningful and enduring change right in your own neighborhood.
