Volunteer FAQs

Age requirements range from 15 years to 21 years of age depending on the program, event, and volunteer position.

We require criminal background checks for all volunteers who interact on a regular basis with children, and $20 donation to the program of your choice to offset the background check cost. This background check is done in-house and may take up to one month.

We rely heavily on our volunteers and cannot run certain programs or events without the help of our dedicated volunteers. It is important, therefore, to ASYMCA and those we serve, that volunteers honor their commitment once they have signed up for an assignment.

Between all our programs and events, we have positions available every day of the week from 0800 to 1800.

Program and Event Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Five Star Kids Academy (School Age Care)
  • Hearts 4 Heroes
  • Father Daughter Military Ball
  • Operation Holiday Joy
  • Patriot’s Pantry
  • and more

Complete the form above with your preferences for times and positions. A staff member will reach out shortly to discuss available positions and review your volunteer application.

Volunteers are expected to report their volunteer hours served in a timely manner. Hours are recorded and kept by the staff member responsible for the volunteer. Should you need any official documentation, please reach out to your point of contact.
