Join the Mission - Become a YMCA Volunteer
STEPPING UP WHEN OUR COMMUNITY NEEDS US MOST
Now more than ever, our community needs us to come together for the greater good. At the Y, we remain committed to providing support and inspiring action in our communities. By mobilizing volunteers and connecting our neighbors with opportunities to make a difference, we can continue meeting critical needs during this time of uncertainty. While our YMCA doors are closed and volunteer opportunities limited, we encourage you to connect with our partner, SHARE Charlotte, to find ways to serve and support the ever-changing needs of our community.
