As a YMCA volunteer, your time and talent goes a long way. Even with our branches closed, there are still ways you can support your community through the Y as a Virtual Volunteer.  Whether you’re from Lynn, Peabody, Melrose, Saugus, Stoneham, or beyond— your efforts, guidance, and connections are greatly needed during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.

Learn more about the ways in which you can get involved!  Current opportunities are below. You can also complete an inquiry form, or reach out to an Executive Director at your local branch.
