Volunteers are hugely important to YMCA International Services and to the clients we serve. We have a number of volunteer opportunities described below. Due to COVID-19, we have established processes to keep both clients and staff safe when in-person work is necessary, but we also have numerous opportunities to volunteer over Zoom.

There are opportunities to tutor in person and over Zoom.
