Volunteer Information ~

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!

If you enjoy the Waldo County YMCA and if you would like to be a part of things as a volunteer, please fill out a volunteer application, let us know what you would like to do and how you see yourself as being a part of our team. If you volunteer, we will make every effort to match your skills with our needs.

Please consider becoming a volunteer. The process is simple:
1. Fill out a volunteer application

2. Come in to the YMCA for a short interview
3. Have background and reference checks
