Volunteer at The Northfield Area Family YMCA

This is an ongoing volunteer opportunity


From helping with special events, working with children, coaching or mentoring, custodial work, special projects and so much more, your skills and interests will make a difference here. Volunteering is more than just sharing your time and passion, it’s about the satisfaction of knowing you are helping people become stronger, giving back to your community and gaining valuable work experience that will enhance your career opportunities. All volunteers receive a YMCA T-shirt.
