You Can Make a Difference!

Lend A Hand, Fill Your Heart!


Thank you for considering the Family YMCA of the Glens Falls Area as a place to donate your time and talents. Volunteers are vital to the YMCA. The Y is a cause for strengthening communities; committed every day to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. 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 Glens Falls Area are over 200 strong. Each in their own way helps our community learn, grow and thrive.

All HANDS IN! We could use someone like you.

At the YMCA, we know that your time and talent are precious, and we want every minute you spend with us to be worthwhile. That’s why we’re asking you to take a few minutes to fill out this application. It will help us begin to make the right match between your skills and interests and the opportunities available. Even though we may know you well, part of the application process also includes conducting background and reference checks on volunteers. It’s just one of the many ways we help protect children and all those served by the YMCA. Thanks for your cooperation in this effort!

If you have any questions about volunteering events, opportunities or any part of our application process, please contact Kristen Flynn, Strategic Initiatives Coordinator, 793-3878 or by email at kflynn@glensfallsymca.org.




Events are a great way for you or your group to get involved without making a long-term commitment.



The Y also offers on-going commitment opportunities for volunteers in program areas such as Summer Camp, Wellness and Youth Development.


Togetherhood is the YMCA's Signature Program for Social Responsibility. This program invites Y members & friends to lead and participate in volunteer service projects that benefit the community where they live. Togetherhood provides a fun, convenient and rewarding way to give back and support our neighbors.
