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...

Jabahri

I’m a single mother of three. My youngest son, Jabahri, is 7 yrs old and has Nonverbal Autism. Five years ago, I began bringing him to Kids Korner so I could workout and have some “me” time. The staff in Kids Korner made me feel very comfortable leaving Jabahri with them. I am truly grateful for the amazing staff, their patience and understanding in working with my son; I couldn’t imagine leaving him in the hands of anyone else. I was very excited that the Y realized there was a need to provide programming for children with autism and developed “Full Circle”; a year-long program where Jabahri participates in 5 different classes, specially designed for him. I always wanted him to be able to take classes, especially swim lessons because he loves water, but knew he wouldn’t do well in a regular class setting. Jabahri loved learning to swim in Sensory Splash, and it meant a lot to me watching him learn this life skill. He then took gymnastics and the improvements I saw from his first to last class were amazing. After only a few weeks, his confidence and self-esteem grew as he walked across the high balance beam, with the help of his teacher. My sincere thanks to the Y for creating Full Circle. With financial support from the Y and our community, Jabahri was able to participate in this program. He can now take classes like any other child, and it makes me so happy to see him doing things other children do. - Jinny
