Volunteering with YMCA

Volunteering with YMCA

Volunteering is freely choosing to perform work for the community without payment. At YMCA, your time and talent go a long way.

Volunteers have been the backbone of YMCA since its establishment over 160 years ago. Today volunteers donate their time to help conduct a wide variety of programmes and services. We acknowledge the unique contribution that each YMCA volunteer brings and we thank them on behalf of the communities they serve.

YMCA provides a diverse range of volunteering opportunities for the communities we operate in, our participants and members and importantly our staff. There is a pressing need for a deeper commitment of time, talent and resources from more people – for greater community involvement. There is also a need to give more people the chance to exercise responsible community leadership.

By becoming a YMCA volunteer you have a unique opportunity to contribute to your community in a way that is both meaningful to you and to the wider community.

Volunteering can help you learn new skills, help others, gain a sense of purpose, make new friends, build self-confidence, explore career opportunities while having fun and enjoying yourself!

YMCA Auckland is committed to Child Protection and the safeguarding of children and young people in our care and it is our expectation that all staff will operate in a way that reflects this intent.
