West Essex YMCA


The YMCA is a volunteer driven organization. Without them we could not provide our community with the extensive services and programs we offer. Volunteers provide enhancement to activities designed to meet the needs and interests of the members, program participants and youth. 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 through programs and services. There are many opportunities throughout the year when we have need for volunteers. Perhaps it is help during a special event, or with the youth programs: it might even be with some office work or help during a fund raiser.

Volunteers explore personal interests and passions

  • give back to their community
  • Fulfill community service requirements for school credit
  • Develop new relationships and make friends
  • Gain community service to add to college, financial aid, and scholarship applications
  • Learn, grow and HAVE FUN!
