Help Your Community, Help Yourself


At the Y, you can count on us to help you exercise your heart in more ways than one.

This August, if you register as a YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles volunteer, we’ll waive your membership Joining Fee – a savings of up to $50! Sign up for our volunteer database now, then head into your local branch to join the Y for free.

There’s no commitment to volunteer for a specific event. To qualify for free membership, all you promise to do is enroll in our YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles database where you can learn about volunteer opportunities in your community.

If you could use a little more joy in your life, don’t wait to sign up because the simple act of volunteering promises you with instant happiness. Psychologists refer to it as a “Helper’s High,” an autonomic response similar to a “Runner’s High,” where your body releases endorphins - the feel-good chemical in the brain, during exercise. In you’ve ever done something nice for someone and the person was so happy that it made you feel happy too, you’ve experienced this incredible phenomenon. Even better, it was revealed that acts of kindness produce a ripple effect where those being helped are inspired to perform an act of kindness of their own.

Start a chain of kindness in your community. This August, join the Y and HELP YOUR COMMUNITY. Because in a world where you can be anything, above all, BE KIND.

Please visit the Welcome Center of your local LA Y to learn more. And since healthy living is better together, you can also share this great deal with friends and family.
