Current Opportunities

Since 1844 the YMCA has flourished due to the determination and passion of volunteers to make a difference in their community, one life at a time.

Through the Y our members can volunteer to serve in their branch or through it with area organizations that seek to make our neighborhoods a better place to live, for all.

Imagine the positive influence for good when every one of our 80,000 members is serving alongside one another for lasting change!

At the YMCA we are committed to inspiring and empowering our members to live out our mission, supporting their cause-driven projects and programs – there is no limit to what we can do together through our association.

Go to Register for Programs and search under Volunteerism for ways to serve in and through the YMCA of Greater Fort Wayne!
