We are the YMCA: 4,000 volunteers and staff working together with more than 115,000 people across the Lower Mainland who believe in helping children and families reach their full potential. 

The challenges facing today's families aren't getting any smaller: rising costs of living, rates of inactivity and chronic diseases, and social isolation. The Y is working to solve these problems, but we can't do it alone.

You have a lot to offer: your time, energy and ideas. As a YMCA volunteer, you might lead an exercise class, mentor young people, fundraise, produce a special event or advise on local issues. No matter how you help, you'll make a big difference in the lives of people in your community.

1 in 5 kids come to the YMCA requiring financial assistance to participate in YMCA programs. Financial challenges and the high cost of living make it challenging or sometimes impossible to afford access to life-enhancing YMCA programs. When you give to the YMCA, you are giving directly to people so they can get active and connected to their community.
