The YMCA is a volunteer driven organization which provides our community with the extensive services and programs. Volunteers develop leadership skills, develop a high sense of self-esteem and increase the opportunity to demonstrate the YMCA’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. There are many opportunities throughout the year when we need volunteers: special events, youth programs, office work or help during a fund raiser.

There are three main areas of service at the South Mountain YMCA.  Each role is unique and important in its own way. Everything we do is designed to nurture the potential of children and teens: Youth Development, improve health and well-being- Healthy Living and motivate people to support their neighbors and the larger community- Social Responsibility.

Youth Development
Volunteers contribute to positively affecting of thousands of kids throughout the year. They teach, mentor, guide and support kids from their first few weeks of life through their first steps into adulthood. Opportunities include:
•    Youth Sports/ Gymnastics Assistants
•    Child Care/ School Age Child Care Assistants
•    Basketball Coach
•    Special Events

Healthy Living
The YMCA volunteers are role models for the community we serve.  They provide resources and guidance to kids, adults and families so they can achieve greater health and well-being in spirit, mind and body. Opportunities include:
•    Nutritional Learning
•    Supporting community events like Healthy Kids Day
•    Welcoming and serving Y members and participants 

Social Responsibility
Volunteers become an advocate of the social needs of the YMCA and the surrounding community.  They help contribute to the mission of the YMCA.  Opportunities include: 
•    Board Member on the Board of Manager
•    Program Committee Member
•    Story teller and Fundraiser for the Annual Support Campaign
•    Clerical Assistant

These opportunities occasionally lead to year-round full or part time employment with our organization.  They may take place administratively in the welcome center, in our various child care programs, in youth sports and gymnastics, camp, or special events that occur throughout the year.  The YMCA provides a positive, enriching atmosphere that allows each volunteer to gain a unique experience and a sense of community.
