The Y is for all.
Ways to Volunteer
Our volunteers are involved in nearly every aspect of our services and operations. They strengthen our leadership by serving on our boards; they help us fundraise by leading our annual and capital campaigns; and they transform lives each day by serving as youth coaches, mentors, class instructors and leaders in our Y facilities and in the community.

Volunteers Make a Difference
“I started volunteering at the Treasure Valley Family YMCA more than 10 years ago, assisting with housekeeping. Since then, I’ve taken on several volunteer roles, from sports to events. I see the benefits of my volunteering every day. I like that I’m supporting my community, but it’s good for me, too. The Y is my second home and family.” -Julia
