Volunteers are a vital part of our work, and are active in many facets of our programs. Opportunities range from a few hours of office work or building maintenance, to a longer-term commitment of staffing a few shifts per month answering the domestic violence hotline or responding in person to calls at the emergency room for victims of sexual violence.

We have three main categories of volunteers:

·        Special Events Volunteers: To help with our signature fundraising events like Race Against Racism and Walk A Mile In Her Shoes.

·        Victim Services Volunteers: Specially trained volunteers who work directly with victims of abuse, including children, on a long time basis.*

·        General Volunteers: Willing to help out where needed, such as, helping file documents, clear trails at camp, take photographs, etc.

Whether you have a few hours or a few days, we appreciate your interest and look forward to working with you. Please complete a volunteer form today to start the process of volunteering with the YWCA! Email the form to or mail to 320 East Market Street, York, Pa 17403.

*For YWCA York’s ACCESS York and the Victim Assistance Center (VAC), Victim Services Volunteers work directly with victims and their children. Thus, volunteers are required to undergo criminal and child abuse background checks, as well as comprehensive training to become qualified counselors/advocates.
