Volunteer commitment is an important part of every activity at the Waldo County YMCA. Volunteers guide our organization as a part of the Board of Directors. Volunteers help in every department, nearly everyday.
We have a solid volunteer
program at our YMCA with a very strong, committed volunteer base. Every
year for the past 7 years we have at least 700 different people give of
themselves in some way to our organization. That
means over 8,000 volunteer hours during the year. We value our
volunteers and the excellent work that they perform!
consider becoming a volunteer. The process is simple:
Dance Chaperones: During the school year, we have a middle school dance once a month, on Friday nights. There are always several staff members at each dance. Volunteers are primarily responsible for helping with refreshments, taking money or signing in the students.
Yard Work: Adult help is needed with work in the area surrounding the building. In the winter we need help with snow removal.
Fitness Instructors: If you have skills and experience in fitness and are interested in leading a class or help filling in when needed, please volunteer.
First Grade Bert & Coral Clifford Swim Safety: The Y offers all first graders in Waldo County the opportunity to participate in the Bert & Coral Clifford First Grade Swim Safety Program. If you love kids and love swimming please consider volunteering a few hours.
Family Festival Triathlon: We are in the planning
stages for our May Triathlon. It takes many great volunteers to make this
event happen. More than 200 volunteers help each year, from registration
to manning safety stations, there are many different jobs to be done.
