Volunteer at the YMCA

Take an active role in strengthening your community. Across Delaware, business leaders, community advocates, parents, teens and individuals who want to give back and support their neighbors volunteer at the Y. That’s because we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but deliver positive, personal and social change.

As a YMCA volunteer, your time and talent go a long way. You can lead a program or class, serve as a role model for young people, become a sports coach, help with a special event, campaign for annual support, or be a part of a committee working to make the YMCA the best it can be. No matter how you help, you’ll make a big difference as you work with others to create a feeling of connectedness in your community.
