Our Work is Powered by Volunteers

Make a difference in the lives of the women, children, & families we serve by joining our YWCA volunteer team.  We are excited to offer several volunteer roles for adults who have availability on weekdays – all listed in the menu below. Unfortunately, our schedule doesn’t accommodate volunteer shifts on evenings or weekends.  We practice COVID safety measures in alignment with Davidson County and local guidance.  Currently, mask-wearing is optional while serving in-person at any of our facilities. 

How to Get Started

Read our volunteer menu below for details about current opportunities. To join our team as an individual volunteer,  you’ll need to participate in a virtual volunteer orientation session, then complete a volunteer application packet and participate in a mandatory background check. Volunteers must be at least 18-years old.  If you express your interest by clicking the button below, you’ll receive an invitation once we schedule our next orientation session.

EXPRESS YOUR INTEREST

YWCA does not offer court-mandated community service volunteer opportunities.  If you need to log volunteer hours for a college service learning project, please explore our internship opportunities

Group Volunteer Opportunities  

Donation Drives – Collect, sort, & deliver items we urgently need for our programs.  This is a great, safe way for your group to work together to support our agency.   Contact Allison Adams via email for help with the details.

Hands-on Site Projects – When it’s safe to do so, we will host small volunteer groups (4-6 adults) to help us with light maintenance & storage organization projects at Weaver Domestic Violence Center.  These projects are typically scheduled on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday morning or afternoon.  We also occasionally have weekday, daytime projects suitable from small groups of volunteers at our administrative office, located on Woodmont Blvd. Mask-wearing is encouraged but not required when serving in-person at one of our facilities.

Please contact Allison Adams via email to learn about current volunteer opportunities for your small group.
