Join the Mission!

With a focus on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, a volunteer’s time and talent can go a long way to support our cause and mission at the Glacial Community YMCA.

The Y offers a variety of volunteer opportunities for individuals looking to help make a difference in the lives of others. Y volunteers give people of all ages and from all walks of life the resources and support they need to be healthy, confident, connected, and served.


Across the United States, more than 500,000 business leaders, community advocates, parents, teens, and individuals who want to give back and support their neighbors volunteer at the Y.

  • Individuals: Find a volunteer opportunity that fits your schedule.
  • Families: Special Events, Community Service Projects, and Clean Up days are a perfect fit for families.

Becoming a volunteer means that you will not only be providing real benefits to your community, but you will be making a difference in someone’s life. Become a vital part of the YMCA. Your special talents would really make a difference.
