The YMCA is seeking those who are looking for volunteer opportunities and who exhibit the values behind the Y mission (caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith) and who want to make a difference.
The Y enlists the time and talents of these individuals to maximize the delivery of programs and services to members and the community as a whole.
These volunteer opportunities are vital to the promotion of the Y’s focus, mission, and values.
Without volunteers, the YMCA of Central Texas would not be able to meet the needs of the kids, families, and adults who live throughout Central Texas.
Prior to volunteering at the YMCA of Central Texas, you will be required to fill out the Y’s Volunteer Application and undergo a thorough background check. Once all of the paperwork and your background check have been completed, you will be notified of your application status by the appropriate supervisor. Volunteer status is re-evaluated periodically.
If approved to be a volunteer, you will be notified when it is time to re-submit information for re-evaluation as a volunteer. Volunteers can be incorporated into almost all aspects of the Y organization.
With that in mind, if you would like to volunteer in some capacity, including as a youth sports league coach, please contact the YMCA of Central Texas health & wellness center nearest to you for the available volunteer opportunities:

Do i have to meet any criteria before I can start volunteering?
The YMCA of Central Texas is responsible for protecting the children and other people we serve. For this reason, we require that all of our volunteer candidates fill out our volunteer application, provide a copy of his/her driver’s license or another type of photo identification, and undergo a thorough background check. Other than that, you don’t need any particular skills or background to help the people in our community! Just let us know what you’re interested in, and we’ll try to match you to a volunteer opportunity.
When may I start?
The YMCA of Central Texas's volunteer application must be filled out and a thorough background check completed before any individuals may become volunteers for the association. Applicants cannot be scheduled to volunteer prior to the supervisor receiving approval from the Human Resources Department. Once an application has been approved, you will be provided with a start date by the supervisor to begin volunteering.
Does the Y offer community service volunteer opportnities?
No. Unfortunately, the YMCA of Central Texas does not offer any volunteering opportunities for those persons needing to complete community service hours as part of a program requirement or sentence.
