Volunteer at the Y

The Y counts on generous volunteers to donate their time and talents to strengthen our community. Y volunteers provide direct support to programs, raise needed funds, support special events and provide leadership by serving on boards. Take a look at our volunteer opportunities or explore the ways you can make an impact as a volunteer at the YMCA.

Ways to Get Involved:

At the YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth, volunteers are the champions fulfilling our mission of building healthy spirit, mind and body for all. We encourage all to take an active role in strengthening our community – whether through leading a program, serving as a mentor, raising annual funds or serving on a committee.


As a mentor, you can provide encouragement and guidance to a child or teen who needs support or has similar interests as you. Inspire and help them reach their full potential.

Coach Youth Sports

Support and assist our sports directors, fellow coaches and kids while teaching children important life lessons that build character. All sports coaches and assistants must complete heads-up concussion training. 

Water Safety

The YMCA teaches thousands of children water safety education and swim instruction each year. Volunteers help make this life-saving program possible.

Corporate Opportunities

Corporate volunteer opportunities enable employees to use their leadership skills for the greater good, like organizing a clothing drive or distributing meals.


Summer Day Camp

Brighten a child’s day! Be a book reader, a homework helper, teach a special skill, help chaperone a field trip, lead group activities or introduce new creative learning experiences.

Membership Greeters/Wellness Volunteers

Greeters welcome everyone who enters the Y – creating a welcoming and friendly culture. Wellness volunteers ensure areas are welcoming and inviting. You’ll assist members with questions, maintain an organized and clean center, and create a friendly and engaging space for all.
