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

Volunteer Opportunities ~

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.

Custodial Support
We are looking for additional support for our custodial services. Please consider a few hours once or twice a week to help with general cleaning.

Front Desk Support

We can always use extra help at our front desk. If you thrive in the environment of customer service this could be the spot for you! We are open nearly 100 hours a week so the possibilities are plentiful.

Mowing & Outside Landscaping

We are looking for volunteers to help with the outside clean up around the building and parking lot. Also, during the spring and summer months we could use help with maintaining our lawns and Hosta Garden. We also would love a volunteer for overseeing flower boxes out front. If you enjoy working outside and would be willing to commit to once or twice a week for a few hours that would be great. This is an adult volunteer opportunity.

Day Camp Support
We can always use extra help with our day campers. Camp begins on June 22, and ends on August 19, 2016. If you are available for a day, a week or more and would like to help, please fill out a volunteer application.

We are looking for help in the following areas:
· Sports Camps if you have knowledge in sports, consider volunteering to help in one of our camps.
