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.

Join the board

The YMCA of Greater Hartford is governed by a board of directors made up of volunteers. These volunteers provide fiduciary oversight, philanthropic & fundraising leadership, and set the strategic goals and policies of the organization. We have an Association Policy Board, and advisory boards at each of our 12 branches.
