With a Sense of Accomplishment
Volunteer at the Y
Last year, over 1,599 people gave back to their community by volunteering at our Y for a total of 29,042 hours, with an estimated value of $620,000! At the YMCA of Southern Arizona, your time and talent go a long way. Every hour spent as a volunteer translates to:
- The caring attention vital to child or teen, helping them to make smart choices.
- Support for families stressed by the economy and time pressures.
- Helping people of all ages and abilities to lead healthier lives.
The wide variety of programs at the Y allows Volunteers to help our community in ways in which they are best prepared to serve. Visual and performing artists can find ways to excite and engage children in the arts. Athletes can help young team participants discover the joy of sports. Teachers and tutors know they are making a difference in literacy and other skills–abilities that will help people in their communities go on to live more productive and positive lives.
