Volunteerism at the Y

At the YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles, volunteers are essential to our mission of building stronger, healthier, and more equitable communities. Through our integrated areas of focus—Healthy Living, Youth Development, and Social Impact—volunteers contribute to a holistic approach that promotes physical health, nurtures young minds, and addresses systemic barriers. Our vision is a community where everyone has a transformative Y experience, fostered by the dedication of volunteers who meet immediate needs and drive long-term social change. With a focus on being people-centered, place-based, and community-oriented, volunteering at the YMCA is a pathway to personal growth and civic engagement, empowering both individuals and communities to thrive together.
