Volunteering At The Y

Thank you for considering the YMCA as a place to donate your time and talents. Your service will immediately impact the lives of those in our community.

Whether you are a volunteer coach for a YMCA sports league team, help with special events, or volunteer in another capacity, volunteers are vital to the YMCA. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to meet the needs of the kids, families, and adults who live in Edwardsville.

At the YMCA, we know that your time and talent are precious, and we want every minute you spend with us to be worthwhile. That’s why we’re asking you to take a few minutes to fill out this application. The YMCA makes an active effort to prevent abuse. So even though we may know you well, we reserve the right to conduct background and reference checks on all volunteers. It’s just one of the many ways we help protect children and other vulnerable people served by the YMCA.

Thanks for your cooperation in this effort and your interest in the YMCA. If you have any questions about this or any part of our volunteer application process, please contact Human Resources, 618-656-0436. Please complete the volunteer packet online by selecting it below.
