Fun. With A Sense of Accomplishment

Last year, more than 1,500 people gave back to their community by volunteering at our Y for a total of 29,042 hours – that’s 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 a 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 many different ways!

  • 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.
