Coach Youth Sports
Leave a life-long impact on the life of a child today by coaching a sport such as basketball, soccer, volleyball or MORE! Coaches are accepted all year round at most of our 17 locations. Email Caitlin Wampler to inquire about upcoming needs.
YMCA Build Projects
We’re working to safely engage children in fun, outdoor activities. In order to safely spread our participants out while eating, we need picnic tables to accommodate our groups outside. This opportunity can be done at home with a group, neighbors, family, or on your own! Would you like to give back but not interested in building something? Consider donating to the fund and any money raised will go back towards a picnic table.
Learn more about our picnic table and bench builds.
We have FOUR awesome tutoring opportunities in our YMCA footprint located at partner schools near our Shady Grove, Chester, Tuckahoe, and Patrick Henry Family YMCAs. These opportunities must have a completed background check prior to beginning. To apply, click Volunteer Opportunities above and find the branch where you'd like to apply. We welcome volunteers ages 16 and up!
