Summit Area YMCA Celebrates National Volunteer Week April 24-28th!

The Summit YMCA is a volunteer-driven and volunteer led non-profit organization. During National Volunteer Week, we honor and thank our volunteers who are integral to helping the Y achieve its mission. 

The key to our success rests in our volunteers who embody the spirit of greatness in all that they do. Thanks for your inspiring dedication and tremendous example to the world.

To show our gratitude, volunteers will be recognized during volunteer week. Please join us in the festivities.
