The Y is a cause for strengthening communities, committed every day to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.


When you volunteer at the Y, you take an active role in bringing about meaningful and enduring change right in your own neighborhood. 


We realize that everyone has personal strengths to offer and to build in others.  Together, we can pursue passions, old and new, and provide mutual support for everyone in our neighborhoods.

**Proper clearances are required for volunteering at the Y.

Financial Assistance


Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. At The Y, no child, family or adult is turned away due to an inability to pay.


Financial assistance awards are assessed on a case by case basis during a one-on-one, confidential session with a staff member. Those interested in applying for our financial assistance program are encouraged to download this form in English or download this form in Spanish, or stop in to any of our branches to learn more and pick up an application.
