When you volunteer at the Y, you take an active role in bringing about meaningful and enduring change right in your own neighborhood.

Y volunteers in the Capital District are 3,000 strong. Each, in their own way, helps people learn, grow and thrive.

Join us, we could use someone like you! Contact your local YMCA branch today.

I had an episode in my life where people volunteered to help me, so this is my way of showing appreciation and gratitude.”    – Y Volunteer
