Give to the Y - Volunteer



There is no other volunteer organization quite like the Y. We are the nation’s leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility and provide kids, adults, families and communities with vital support and opportunities to learn, grow and thrive.

Each of our Ys work day in and day out to strengthen our community by nurturing the potential of children and teens, improving our community’s health and well-being, and giving back and supporting our neighbors. That’s because we have the presence and partnerships on the First Coast not just to promise, but deliver, lasting personal and social change.

As a Y volunteer you can help deliver the benefits of good health, strong connections, greater self-confidence and a sense of security to all who seek it. When you volunteer at the Y, you take an active role in bringing about meaningful, enduring change right in your own neighborhood.

Ready to get involved and make a difference? Join us. We could use someone like you.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers of the Y lead our boards and committees, raise funds to ensure the Y is accessible to all members of the community, coach our sports teams, motivate and support youth through mentoring, extend a hand to adults who want to do more, be more or live healthier, advocate for the Y’s efforts to influence policies and initiatives that positively impact the community, and participate in special events that provide opportunities to give back and support neighbors.

Take an active role in strengthening your community. View our Volunteer Opportunities listing or find a Y in your community to learn more about volunteer opportunities.
