You have special talents; why not share them! Volunteer to coach a sports team or teach a dance class. Lend your time and talent leading one of our Funshop activities for kids (creative activities for kids involving art, science and more). Be a special guest in one of our after school programs and share your passion for your career field. Join Togetherhood, our member-led volunteer service program, and work on service projects that benefit your community. The opportunities are endless! <
Special Event Volunteers
The Y has special events taking place every month and we need your help making them a success! Most of our events are open to the community as a way for community members to interact and connect.
We hold monthly family events at our Y Centers like movie nights, sweetheart dances, and national events like Y Healthy Kids Day.
Our premier fundraising event is our Annual Y Turkey Trot Charity 5K held on Thanksgiving morning in multiple locations in Central Maryland and beyond. This event requires hundreds of volunteers, from children to seniors, to help us pull it off without a hitch. <
Community Leadership Boards
The communities we serve are supported by a volunteer board known as a Community Leadership Board (CLB). CLB members' primary responsibility is to help engage the community in the Y's charitable mission to support children and families in need so they may benefit from quality Y experiences they otherwise could not afford such as Y camp, preschool, before & after school enrichment, and membership.
If you would like to get involved on a Community Leadership Board, please contact Debra Einstein at DebraEinstein@ymaryland.org.
Corporate volunteer activities are also available and can be tailored to meet the interests of your organization. Prior activities include specific service projects such as camp clean-up days, community restoration days, and more. Please contact Eric Somerville at EricSomerville@ymaryland.org.
