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.


If you work for a Matching Gift Company, don’t forget to contact your HR department to find out how to submit your Volunteer Hours Match Grant to make your volunteer time go even further through a financial gift from your company!


Volunteers at the Y do multiple things to help us better serve the community. Opportunities include:

  • Y Readers Reading Buddies *Summer Opportunity

  • Youth Sports Coaches

  • Food Share

  • Community Events (Golf Tournament, Races & more)

Find out more by searching our opportunities online or email us at volunteer@ymcacharlotte.org.
