Volunteer
 

In line with the American tradition of volunteerism, Yonkers YWCA encourages good citizenship by offering community members meaningful opportunities for civic engagement through volunteer service in whatever capacity they are able in every aspect of the Agency. The YWCA is thus a place to experience the personal reward of helping others while sharing and / or discovering one’s own talents and interests. Volunteers may choose to bring cheer to senior citizens, make minor renovations to the building, help in our day-care programs or summer camp, help prepare various publications or assist with fundraising initiatives.

Whether professionals, retired individuals, students, welfare to work participants or seniors, volunteers make an extraordinary difference in people’s lives. Volunteer Opportunities include:

  • Mentoring a woman or children, infants to 18 years of age
  • Facilities/Gardening
  • Life Skills Workshops
  • Teach a skill/craft
  • Public Relations, Fundraising & Special Events
  • Donate time or resources to the Food Pantry &/or My Sister’s Closet
  • Transportation
  • Board Membership
