Group volunteer working in the kitchen at Weaver

The safety and well-being of all those served by and who work or volunteer with YWCA is our top priority.  In light of ongoing developments regarding the COVID-19 virus, YWCA is suspending all volunteer engagement opportunities until further notice. 

Updates will be communicated via social media, volunteer e-blast, and our website.

Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support. Stay safe and healthy!

YWCA offers engaging experiences that enable our volunteers to grow personally and professionally. We could not achieve our mission without them! You can make a difference in the lives of the women, children, and families we serve by joining our YWCA Volunteer Team. There are many ways you can support women and families, including ongoing tasks, one-time events and group projects.

Ongoing projects are great for volunteers looking for a continuous and scheduled experience. These typically involving a weekly commitment with a defined date and time. Some of these projects include working in the Weaver Domestic Violence Center’s Community Market or tutoring in our Family Literacy Center.

One-time events are great opportunities for those who need more flexibility in their schedules and cannot commit to volunteering on an ongoing basis. Any one-time event also makes for a great volunteer opportunity for groups!

Interested in volunteering?

To join our volunteer team, you will need to attend a volunteer orientation session, complete a volunteer application packet, background check, and sign confidentiality forms. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old.  YWCA does not offer court-ordered community service as a volunteer opportunity.  If you need to log volunteer hours for a service learning project, please explore our internship opportunities .  

Please fill out this form to express your interest in volunteering and we will invite you to our next orientation.
