At the Y, we're more than a gym, we're a community! Here you are part of something bigger than yourself. Over 1,200 staff and 2,000 volunteers are ready to teach, coach, and care for our over 30,000 members.

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...

Jon & Gretchen

There are some volunteers you can always count on to be there to fill a need. Jon and Gretchen Lee are just those volunteers. As volunteers for the Y, Jon and Gretchen help out in many ways. When the Y has a need, we know that Jon and Gretchen will be there. As Y volunteers, John and Gretchen donate about twenty-five hours of service per year, doing as much as they can. At the Y, John and Gretchen enjoy interacting with the staff and members. John and Gretchen are staples at the Y’s special events, like Halloween at the Y and Health Kids Day. They are also very involved with the West Side Y’s Annual Campaign, raising money to support the Y. Some their favorite Y volunteer experiences have been helping at a chili sale and checking in costumed children at Halloween at the Y. Every one of John and Gretchen’s volunteer experiences has been very rewarding and they believe that they often receive more than they give in volunteering. We don’t agree—if the the Y didn’t have volunteers like John and Gretchen, we would be missing out!
