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...

Hugo and Araceli

Hugo and Araceli’s doctor advised their mother to get the kids physically active. Hugo was diagnosed as pre-diabetic and needed to lose weight. With the help of the Strong Kids Campaign, they were able to become members of the Y. They chose swim lessons as a way to start becoming active. They were afraid of the water, did not know how to swim, and were extremely shy and timid. For the first few lessons, Araceli would not let go of the side of the pool or the instructor; now she is swimming alone with a noodle. Their confidence has improved tremendously. Hugo has been telling all his friends about the Y and how he learned to swim. Now he swims alone in the deep end of the pool and has taken an interest in running and “working out”. He is proud that he can now swim and has lost weight. ~Hugo and Araceli
