Make a difference in your community through the YWCA. There are lots of ways you can support women and families, including one-time events, ongoing tasks and group projects.

To participate in an ongoing tasks, you will need to go through processing (pre-screen, in-person interview, references, background check, signing confidentiality forms). Ongoing positions also require a minimum of a three to six month time commitment, depending on the volunteer position. One-time events are for those who need more flexibility in their schedules, and cannot commit to volunteering on an ongoing basis. These positions usually have less contact with clients or residents. Any one-time event also makes for a great volunteer opportunity for groups!
