  • Program Volunteers - do you enjoy working with children, teaching the fundamentals of basketball, soccer or football? Volunteering as a coach can be a rewarding experience. Also we need help in aquatics, administration, fitness and YREADS! (see below).
  • Fund Raising Volunteers - raise funds through our campaigns (Annual Community Scholarship, Capital or Special Events).
  • Policy Volunteers - serve on the Association Board of Directors, Branch Board of Advisors, on a committee or on a task force.
  • Support Volunteers - work at the front desk, around the grounds, or greet and give tours.
  • Managerial Volunteers - help to manage or administer YMCA operations or consult on special projects. As a key leader in the community, are you interested in volunteering on the Y Branch Advisory Board? Are you willing to assist individuals and families so they may join or participate at the Y?

The Manatee County YMCA's success depends on our wonderful volunteers. If you would like to volunteer, contact the YMCA nearest you.

YREADS Needs Volunteers - â€¨The YMCA Reads program needs volunteers for its after-school program at Bayshore Elementary School from 3:00 PM-5:00PM, two times a week.
