Become A Volunteer

Thank you in advance for considering the Wilmington Family YMCA as a place to donate your time and talents. Volunteers are vital to the Y. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to meet the needs of the kids, families, and adults who live in Wilmington.

At the YMCA we know that your time and talent are precious; we want every minute you spend with us to be worthwhile. That’s why we’re asking you to take a few minutes to fill out an application. It will help us begin to make the right match between your skills and interests and the opportunities available.

You will find questions on the volunteer application about your background, former residences, places of employment, and so on. We hope you’ll understand that, unfortunately, there are a few people who apply for volunteer jobs at the YMCA for the wrong reasons. The YMCA, however, makes an active effort to prevent abuse. So even though we may know you well, we reserve the right to conduct background and reference checks on all volunteers. It’s just one of the many ways we help protect children and other vulnerable people served by the YMCA. Thank you for your cooperation!

If you are not a member of the Y or you have not recently participated in Y programs you most likely will need to create a YMCA account. First create an account (select "non-member") then use the second link below to fill out the volunteer application. If you are a Y Member, go to Step Two and login to your account.
