Harris YMCA Volunteer Projects

At the Y, we believe that when people come together for a common cause, the whole community is strengthened. When you become a volunteer, you have the opportunity to share your blessings with those who need it most. Volunteering with the YMCA is powerful because you’re not just joining a mission, you’re joining a community of like minded people who want to make a difference. There are so many exciting and meaningful ways to get involved and volunteer at the Y. Branch projects are listed below, if you are interested in projects going on throughout our association, Click Here.

Harris YMCA ESL Conversation Volunteers

Through their partnership, the Harris YMCA and Forest Hill Church offer English classes to adults living in the South Blvd corridor three times per week. The program seeks to acculturate the students and build community while providing participants with the language skills they seek in order to improve their lives and the lives of their families. Summer Volunteer Qualifications In the summer, several students with intermediate level English meet in small groups (3-4 students) with one volunteer to practice conversation skills. In cooperation with the students, the volunteer chooses the day, time and place for meetings 2-4 times per month June through August (1.5- 2 hours per meeting). Volunteers must be available at least twice a month on an established schedule of one morning or evening on a weekday (Monday – Thursday) **All volunteers will work under the guidance of the ESL Director. Volunteer training and all materials will be provided.** **All Summer groups will meet in a public place and the volunteer chooses the day, time & place for meeting June - August.** For more information about the program, contact Susan Padgett, ESL Director at 704-612-2214
