Youth volunteering at the YMCA
All YMCA before and after school programs will remain closed following the April Break due to the provincial order to close schools to in-person learning. All YMCA School Age Child Care payments will be suspended at this time, with the exception of outstanding payments.
All YMCA Health, Fitness & Aquatics facilities remain temporarily closed due to the province-wide stay-at-home order. All active memberships will be placed on hold as of April 3rd and no membership payments will be collected. For complete info please read our Updates to Members.

Last year, more than 1,100 YMCA volunteers gave their time to help people learn, grow, and thrive, right here in our community.

Volunteers make a significant contribution and you can too by volunteering with the YMCA.  

Volunteer Roles

There are many types of volunteer roles across our Association. Whether supporting our programs and events or providing expertise and leadership, volunteers are at the heart of everything we do. Whatever your talents, interests, or schedule, there is an opportunity for you to give back through the YMCA.

Volunteering is open to people age 12 and up.
