2017 Volunteer CalendarThe Greater Green Bay YMCA is a cause-driven, non-profit organization that strengthens the foundations of our community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. We seek volunteers who desire to join the Y movement and be part of our community of service.

At the Y, a volunteer is anyone who performs a task at the direction and the behalf of the Y without compensation or special member discounts. Y volunteers have fun!

My Y Story...


As a youth sports coach, John has coached soccer, baseball, flag football, and basketball. Since its inception in 1978, the Y’s Youth Sports Program has depended on volunteer coaches to operate. The Y’s Youth Sports programs introduces children to a non-competitive, everyone plays approach to sports and lays the foundation for a lifetime of physical activity. As a coach, John dedicates approximately 2 hours per week during a 7-week season. Overall, John has volunteered for at least 80 hours in the past year and over 200 hours since he first began coaching for the Y. John is more than a coach, he is also a mentor to his players. In John’s words, “seeing players gain a positive outlook about a sport and work together,” is one of the main reasons he returns season after season to coach. In addition to volunteering to coach at the Y, John is a volunteer den leader for a local Tiger Cub pack with Boy Scouts of America. As den leader, John volunteers for an additional 6 hours a month. John plans to continue to be involved at the Y: “I’m not done coaching yet. I’m an old guy, who’s young at heart and I plan to continue to be part of the Y system for a long time.” The Y appreciates parents like John, who get off the sidelines and make a difference in the lives of youth.
