At the Ann Arbor YMCA we are committed to strengthening our community. And we can't do it without our member volunteers. Every year, Ann Arbor YMCA members make it possible for the Y to change the lives of kids, teens, adults and seniors in our community. Our member volunteers help us feed our fellow citizens, mentor children and much more. Throughout the year, we offer volunteer opportunities that are available to adult members of the Ann Arbor YMCA. 

For more information please contact Abbey Davis, Teen & Volunteer Director, at adavis[AT] annarborymca.org, or 734 661 8012.
