Supporting Communities, Together

Volunteers are a vital part of the YMCA of Central Ohio. Thousands of volunteers every year support our work, our values and our mission to build strong families and strong communities. Whether you’re serving a meal at our shelter, coaching a youth sports team or helping out at a community event, your time and talents make a difference to the people you serve. 


We can’t do it without you.

Our volunteers have:

  • Served fresh produce to at-risk communities
  • Supported our Van Buren shelter by providing meals and basic needs to individuals and families suffering from homelessness 
  • Taught and guided the next generation by coaching youth sports and being teen club mentors

There are plenty of ways to volunteer at the Y!
