TOGETHERHOOD® PROGRAM

Addressing Community Needs Through Volunteerism

The Wayne YMCA is committed to supporting the communities we serve through the Togetherhood® Program. The Y has established committees to identify community needs and lead projects that help our members give back and support their neighbors. This volunteer initiative is primarily focused on supporting our communities through:

  • Community Support - Give back to community members who need support
  • Cultural Engagement - Respect, honor and celebrate diversity that is the fabric of our communities
  • Senior Outreach - Connect with seniors who often feel lonely and isolated
  • Special Projects - Support events that make our community vibrant and exciting

Upcoming Programs:

Saturday, July 14 from 10am-12pm
Clean Up Terhune Memorial Park (Sunnybank)
