The Ann Arbor YMCA facilitates volunteer opportunities in the outside Ann Arbor community through our Togetherhood program or within Y programs as coaches, program volunteers or crafters. Read below to find out what works for you.
Togetherhood provides opportunities for Y members to lead and participate in volunteer service projects in the outside community. Opportunities will be posted on our website and sent out via email to all those interested. Please join our mailing list and receive information about upcoming service project opportunities: Sign up for our mailing list here Please contact Abbey Davis, Teen & Volunteer Director, at 734.661.8012 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
An application for all volunteer opportunities is available here.
The Y also invites adults interested in volunteering within the facility to review these opportunities:
Quilting for a Cause
Join us as we give we back to the community while learning how to recycle old t-shirts into quilts. This free, volunteer led program invites both experienced and first time quilters to create beautiful pieces for those in need. Help others stay warm this winter and learn something along the way! We will have supplies (scissors, cutting mats, etc) available for use.
Quilters will meet in the Michigan Room from 10am to 12:00pm every Friday.
Help create and lead activities with children from kindergarten through fourth grade. Activities may include craft projects, healthy snack preparation, assist with homework, physical activity exercises and more.
Pick a story and read it to children in our preschool or school-aged care programs. You could even dress up to match the story or help plan a craft or snack that works with your theme.
The YMCA is looking for fun, dedicated individuals who enjoy working with children and wants to make a difference in their community. By volunteering in Child Watch, you have the opportunity to meet new people and share your skills with children of all ages.

Youth in Government at the Ann Arbor Y would benefit greatly from learning from local community members who are well versed about our governmental system and how laws are created.
