The Y is a cause for strengthening communities, committed everyday to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
When you volunteer at the Y, you take an active role in bringing about meaningful, enduring change right in your own neighborhood.
There is no other volunteer organization quite like the Y. That's because in 10,000 communities across the nation, we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but to deliver, lasting personal and social change.
Each of our volunteers helps deliver the benefits of good health, strong connections, greater self-confidence and a sense of security to all who seek it.
As the nation's leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y provides kids, adults, families and communities with vital support and opportunities to learn, grow and thrive.
We work tirelessly every day to nurture the potential of kids, improve the nation's health and well-being, and give back and support our neighbors.
