GET INVOLVED WITH OUR CAUSE
Volunteers are the backbone of our organization. Without volunteers we could not provide our community with the extensive services and programs we currently offer. Volunteers provide essential assistance in the administration of each department division, serve on committess, work with staff to meet the needs of our members and participants, and provide many other valuable contributions to the organization.
The Harrison Family YMCA offers year-round volunteer opportunities for members and non-members from the community and surrounding areas to give back and help build a better community within our Y. Opportunities range throughout the year and are based upon need within a program or department. Our manual is designed to guide and assist Volunteers and Volunteer Supervisors to effectively share the message of the Y.
To volunteer, please fill out the following forms and send back to Alyssa Matthews via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), mail (PO Box 4063 Rocky Mount, NC 27803) or fax (252-972-3580).
JOIN US IN GIVING BACK
Togetherhood invites Y members to activate their social responsibility by participating in the Y’s cause to strengthen community. Togetherhood provides Y members with fun, convenient and rewarding ways to give back and support their neighbors.
The program is run through individual Y branches as a partnership between a committee of members and a Y Staff Advisor. Commitee members will plan community projects with other amazing community organizations throughout the year, and will help recruit volunteers to do those hands-on projects. Examples of projects could include serving meals to the homeless, organizing clothes for children in need, or planting plants at a community garden.
It is designed to be a simple, fun and rewarding way for members to identify ways that they can give back and support their neighbors through their own ideas, skills and energy, and the network of the Y.
Get involved! We need committee members to help plan projects as well as one-time volunteers to give just a few hours of their time at a specific volunteer event or project.
