Volunteering at the Y


Volunteers have been the backbone of the YMCA since we opened our doors over 160 years ago. Today, hundreds of volunteers donate their time and talents to help support our mission; connecting people to their communities to live healthier, happier lives. It is important to us that our volunteers have rewarding experiences in their work, with access to training, development and connection to their community - not to mention the fantastic feeling that comes with making a difference in the lives of others.

 

The successful candidate will be available to commit to volunteering as a long-term commitment. We are looking for someone who has various availabilities over the 7 days of the week between 10:00AM - 3:00PM and 7:00PM - 9:30PM.


Volunteering is a unique opportunity to contribute to your community within our recreation sites in a way that is meaningful to both yourself and to the wider community. Our volunteers get involved for a variety of reasons, such as:

 

  • To give back to the community
  • As a stepping stone into the workforce
  • For the satisfaction of helping
  • Getting involved in a community of like-minded people
  • Personal and professional development
  • Sharing skills and talents.

 

Whatever your reason for volunteering, we aspire to have all of our volunteers benefit from their experience as much as our communities benefit from their service. 


To be a volunteer you will need to:  

 

  • Complete a Working with Children Check. As a volunteer, you're Working with Children Check will be free of cost.
  • Complete a National police check (International if required) paid for by the Y
  • Ability and willingness to comply with YMCA NSW Child Protection Policies & Procedures
