As a YMCA volunteer, your time and talent goes a long way.  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.

Are you a corporate or other group looking for a day of service? We are happy to work with you! Please contact Laura Chadwell, Director of Grants & Community Engagement, directly to inquire.

Current Volunteer Opportunities

Note: Due to increasing COVID-19 infections in our region, we are putting a pause on in person volunteering temporarily. However, you can still indicate your interest, and we will follow up with you when it is safe to resume volunteering in person!

NEW! Rapid Response Volunteer Team

Our Y frequently receives large donations of food & necessities to distribute to people in need. These opportunities are often last minute and require volunteers to help us unload and distribute these donations, which are sometimes heavy boxes. These opportunities are a lot of fun and a great way to ease the burden on our staff!

If you would like to be included on a mailing list with these opportunities, please choose “Rapid Response Volunteer” in the Volunteer Interest Form.


Property Help

Great for groups! If you are looking to get outside, and are generally handy, our YMCA locations could use assistance in property clean-up & winterizing.  Property & Camp Clean Up includes raking & removing trash, leaves, & branches.  Our Sheds & Garden also need winterizing to help get them through the snow! To sign up: Email Chris Rollins directly.




Support our Little Necessities Pantry in Lynn!

The Little Necessities Pantry collects and distributes diapers, wipes, formula, and baby food for families in need. Coordinate a Diaper Drive and bring Diapers, Wipes & Formula to the Lynn YMCA for distribution.
