The Mid-Willamette Family YMCA welcomes volunteers. Volunteers are the “heart” of the YMCA.   Whether it’s offering hugs in the Child Watch, homework help in the classroom, or guiding students with disabilities into the pool for the first time . . . there’s just no way to put a price tag on the sense of  fulfillment that comes from helping someone else.

The measure of a community’s success is the support and opportunity it provides to children, families, adults and seniors. Volunteer coaches, program leaders, policy-setting board members and fund raisers  invest thousands of hours at the YMCA to serve their community because they believe in the lasting benefits of the YMCA.

We sincerely thank everyone who has been involved volunteering for our YMCA. We can’t do this without all of you!
