During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
In partnership with the Raikes Foundation, Accelerator YMCA is hosting a pilot project engaging a Board of approximately 5-12 youth who will be decision makers for a $60,000 Request for Proposal (RFP). Beginning in March 2020, the Board will meet once or twice per month, for a couple hours each, and learn the basics of the RFP process. Over the course of a year, participants will create and issue an RFP, select a recipient and oversee the grant for a year.
This program is dedicated to serving young people ages 18-26 who have been impacted by homelessness or other life barriers.
We are looking for a volunteer to help develop and execute course curriculum. The ideal candidate has experience in grant-writing, with experience in education or social justice as an added bonus.

The Accelerator YMCA helps young people be safe, successful and happy by providing a variety of programs that promote success, prevent harm, and enrich lives.
We provide a continuum of high impact programs for young people and their families that prevent harm, promote success and enrich lives. We share our successful approaches with other organizations to accelerate positive impact broadly, and beyond our YMCA.
Some of Acclerator programs include:
Get Engaged and PugetSoundOff programs equip the next generation of civic participants for employment through the development of media and media literacy skills, access to the newest digital technology, a youth art gallery and a thriving online blogging community. Participants have the opportunity to serve on city boards and commissions to further strengthen their voices and impact the community issues that matter most to them.
The Alive & Free Program: empowering youth and young adults to prevent and recover from violence and pursue their true potential
Family Services Mental Health: offering services that are strengths-based, individualized, client-driven, culturally-competent and community-based. Family Services Mental Health's vision is to support the well-being of families and communities, while developing spirit, mind and body.
Young Adult Services: providing opportunities and education, employment and housing resources for young people to set their own goals as they move from foster care or homelessness.
We'll work with your schedule.
