Volunteer Opportunities | YMCA of South Hampton Roads
Help Desk Software

Volunteers are vital to the Y. Without them, we wouldn't be able to meet the needs of the kids, families, and adults who live in our community. Thank you for considering the Y as a place to donate your time and talents. We know that they are precious and want every moment you spend with us to be worthwhile.

With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, Y volunteers give men, women and children of all ages and from all walks of life the resources and support they need to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.

Togetherhood™

Togetherhood is a member-led community service program that invites Y members to activate their social responsibility by participating in the Y’s cause to strengthen community. Togetherhood provides Y members with fun, convenient and rewarding ways to give back and support their neighbors.

The program is run through YMCA family centers as a partnership between a committee of members and a Y Staff Advisor. It is designed to be a simple, fun and rewarding way for members to identify ways that they can give back and support their neighbors through their own ideas, skills and energy, and the network of the Y.
