Volunteering at your local YMCA is a great way to make a positive impact on your community. Local volunteers help keep communities strong, and your local YMCA is one of the best places to get involved. At Countryside YMCA, we welcome all the volunteer help we can get. We offer various ways for volunteers to lend a hand, from being a tour guide to working with active seniors at Stolle Center. Countryside YMCA discusses the benefits of volunteering and why you should volunteer with us.
All communities need their residents to be involved in local organizations if they are to thrive. Every community faces unique challenges, from public schooling to homelessness. Community centers are often the best places to help with those challenges. Volunteering at community centers saves valuable financial resources for the organization, gives you something worthwhile to do in your spare time, and strengthens families and schools. Through community centers like Countryside YMCA, volunteers provide daycare and after-school programs, as well as helping with youth sports programs.
