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!

Bluefish Home Swim Meet Helpers: Do you have a few hours to come in and help with concessions at a Bluefish swim meet? We have a great group of swim parents that head up this area but we could use some help. We will need help on the following dates: January 3 & 9. Let us know if you want to join in the fun!!

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.
