Join the Mission - Become a YMCA Volunteer


Every YMCA volunteer matters.  Volunteering with the Y doesn’t just make the lives of others better, it changes yours, too. When you volunteer, you discover a sense of belonging as you work alongside others for a common cause. The Y is more than a gym or a fitness center or meeting space - we are a community that transforms lives.


  • Fall Youth Sports Coaches
  • In Partnership with the Charlotte Hornets, volunteers are needed for our NEW Adaptive Programs for youth with disabilities including basketball, cheer, dance, and Miracle League softball.
  • Level Up gives teens an awesome place to spend their Friday and Saturday nights with their friends. Volunteers are needed to help run this event on select weekends from 7-11 pm.
  • Each month in partnership with Loaves & Fishes, we hold Food Shares to pass out food to community members in need.
  • Volunteers are needed for our annual C2 Obstacle Trail Run at Camp Thunderbird on September 10, 2022.

Coach Youth Sports

Coaching provides a unique opportunity to instill positive values and help kids develop healthy habits that extend beyond the playing field. The Y offers coaching opportunities for a variety of sports.

Help Raise Funds

When you fundraise to support kids, adults and families who need us most, you create opportunities for everyone in our community to thrive.
