Our Y volunteers make the difference! When you decide to invest your time and talents as a volunteer with the Y, you are filling a special need in our community, as only you can. Your service may help to shape a child's future, or encourage the spirits of seniors and families alike. That's why we need you here at the YMCA of North Central Ohio as a volunteer.
At the Y, we offer many volunteer opportunities accommodating individuals and groups alike. We welcome new friends from all walks of life who are committed to helping others and want to share their skills and talents with our members and other families in our community who are in need of services.
Togetherhood leverages the Y’s charitable mission to unlock people’s potential to improve lives and create a more connected society. Bringing diverse people together to tackle social issues creates more cohesive communities. A culture of volunteerism can also yield social benefits such as lower unemployment, greater income equality, and youth that are more likely to stay in school and avoid risky behaviors.
How it Works
A Y staff adviser guides a committee of Y members who plan and lead volunteer service projects. A comprehensive resource toolkit ensures Togetherhood committees are supported each step of the way, from planning the year of service to running projects to reporting and celebrating their successes.
How to Get Involved
The Y is mobilizing thousands of volunteers nationwide who are using their creativity, passion and hard work to transform communities. We invite you to join us! Ask your front desk staff if your Y offers the Togetherhood program. With Togetherhood, there are opportunities to serve on a committee throughout the year or volunteer on individual projects that interest you. If your Y doesn’t yet offer Togetherhood, let your branch leadership know that your’re interested and ask about other ways to volunteer and give back through the Y.
Whether being part of the Togetherhood program or just wanting to lend a helping hand at the Y, we want you to help make a real difference in the lives of Richland County residents!
