Volunteer

Our YMCA can always use more helping hands.

At the Y, you can coach a sports team, help teach a child to read, or raise funds through our We Build People Campaign to ensure the Y is accessible to everyone in our community. Don't you want to help us make a positive difference in your neighborhood?

We provide volunteer opportunities that can fit your interests and schedule.

Sports Coaches

Use your talents to encourage, guide and train young athletes at the Y. We rely on volunteer coaches to lead our year-round sports leagues. Programs include a wide variety of sports including basketball, soccer, tee-ball and baseball. Contact the Y near you to see how you can get in the game.

Tutorial Programs

Through creative activities and guided homework sessions, help a child develop the skills they need to succeed in school and in life. You can provide one-on-one mentoring or tutor a small group of students through our Y Learning and Community HOPE programs. Check out the tutorial opportunities at the Y branch near you.

Special Events

The YMCA of the Triangle is always on the go. Check our Events calendar for volunteer opportunities for kids' triathlons, races, walks and golf tournaments throughout the year.

We Build People Volunteer

Our annual support campaign, We Build People, is a community-wide effort to raise funds for children, teens, families and adults who need the Y. More than 1,400 local volunteers help raise funds so that everyone has the opportunity to participate in Y programs. Join our We Build People team today.
