Volunteer

YWCA IS ON A MISSION TO ELIMINATE RACISM, EMPOWER WOMEN, STAND UP FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE, HELP FAMILIES AND STRENGTHEN COMMUNITIES. JOIN US!

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.

Whether you have a few hours or a few days, we appreciate your interest and look forward to working with you. Please complete a registration form today to start the process of volunteering with the YWCA! We have three main categories of volunteers:

·Special Events Volunteers who help with community outreach and fundraising events like Walk A Mile In Her Shoes, Race Against Racism, etc.        

·Victim Services Volunteers who are specially trained volunteers working directly with victims of abuse.*

· General Volunteers who are willing to help with office work, camp trail maintenance, and general repairs.      

*YWCA York requires that volunteers working at ACCESS York and the Victim Assistance Center (VAC), Victim Services Volunteers undergo criminal and child abuse background checks, as well as comprehensive training to become qualified counselors/advocates. This type of volunteerism takes a special person with a strong commitment to serving others.
