You have a lot to offer the YMCA; your time, energy and ideas. As a YMCA volunteer, you might lead an exercise class, mentor young people, fundraise, produce a special event or advise on local issues. No matter how you help, you’ll make a big difference in the lives of people in your community.

More than sharing your time and passion, volunteering with the Y is about the satisfaction of knowing you are helping people and gaining valuable experience that can assist you in your own personal goals.

We offer a wide range of programs and services throughout the Halifax area with volunteer opportunities to match your passion, skills and availability. Areas of interest include:

  • Health & Fitness
  • Child Care
  • Employment Training
  • Immigrant Services
  • Day and Overnight Camps
  • Fundraising
