Ways to volunteer


Be a coach

We need coaches to inspire our youth in our development programs! Coaches don’t need any experience! A coaching meeting and manual will be provided prior to the session start.
Community Service

Community Service

Collecting school supplies, donating blood or running a park clean-up are just some of the countless ways Y members, their friends and families can come together in service to their community.

The YMCA of Greater Hartford is governed by an Association Policy Board, and advisory boards at each of our 12 branches, who provide fiduciary oversight, philanthropic & fundraising leadership, and set strategic goals and policies.
