Volunteens Program

Are you a high school student interested in volunteering during the summer? Or do you need community service hours to fulfill an organizational requirement? If so, look no further than the Summit Area YMCA!

What is the YMCA VolunTeens Program?

Volunteens is a summer program for students in grades 8th – 12th who are looking to earn hours and gain experience working within the Summit YMCA. Teens are required to commit 4 weeks in this program and will be assigned to one or more department based on their interests and skill set.

What Do VolunTeens Do?

The Volunteens program provides the young adults in our community the opportunities to learn the importance of using their strengths and skills to help or provide a service towards others, especially to those seeking assistance. As a Volunteen, you will have a chance to experience different volunteer opportunities with the Y for example, assisting with youth sports, swim and childcare programs, community events like the food bank, clothing drives, off-site cleanups, and the local senior center, creating content for marketing and social media and more.

Once approved to be a volunteen, you may also volunteer at any Summit Area YMCA events that call for volunteers.
