REWARDED IN WAYS YOU CAN NEVER IMAGINE
The Sioux Y has a profound affect on the community, providing a safe place where kids can learn, grow, and have fun. Volunteers are a pivotal part of this community and our organization. They help us better serve the youth of our area. At the Y, we have a place and purpose for you.
Volunteering means you are part of a movement - you are a champion for building healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. You will be rewarded in ways you could never imagine.

PART OF SOMETHING LARGER THAN ANY ONE PERSON
The Sioux YMCA offers volunteer opportunities in a multitude of capacities. Check out more information below:
In addition to donation your time and talents to the Y as a volunteer, you can make an impact by making a financial contribution. Your donation ensures that those who need us most have access to quality programs, activities, and facilities. When you give to the Sioux Y, you make a difference.
We have volunteer groups come to the Y in all shapes and sizes and at all times of the year. Depending on group size, skill ability, desire, and the weather outside, groups assist in programming with the kids and work on service projects. We also incorporate a cultural component where local artists and presenters share their knowledge and stories with groups.
LONG TERM VOLUNTEERS
These special individuals are able to give their time for a longer duration. Often they arrive, receive orientation, and then can make the experience their own. LTVs in the past have written grants, started new community partnerships, participated in running our community wellness program, built a garden and so much more!
Our volunteers aren't always with a group, or can't dedicate a huge amount of time. Sometimes they only have a few hours or days to give. Together, we clean, organize, paint, play, run around in circles, chase kids, cook and eat, and have so much fun. Whatever your time frame, come on out!
"I don’t know if I can truly express what this trip meant to me, but I will try….I can say with complete certainty that I am not the same person who got on the bus on that first day, and that is a good thing. I have a greater understanding of another culture and what the YMCA can do for people." -Teen Volunteer from Pierre Kitsap Country YMCA
