Last year, over 1,599 people gave back to their community by volunteering at our Y for a total of 29,042 hours, with an estimated value of $620,000!
At the YMCA of Southern Arizona, your time and talent go a long way. Every hour spent as a volunteer translates to:
- The caring attention vital to child or teen, helping them to make smart choices.
- Support for families stressed by the economy and time pressures.
- Helping people of all ages and abilities to lead healthier lives.

The YMCA of Southern Arizona and its 5 branches operate with a Volunteer advisory that assist with strategic planning, policy and vision of the Y. This advisory is vital for the continual existence of the Y and the changes it brings along. You can become a Volunteer and lead our Board of Directors and Committees. Contact Kerry Dufour for more information.
Volunteers motivate and support youth, help build character strengths, develop skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, healthier lifestyles, smart life choices and the pursuit of higher education and aspiring higher goals in life.
Every year, more than 250 Volunteers participate to raise awareness and encourage financial participation at the Y. Volunteers join forces to raise support by calling friends, colleagues, and other contacts to provide more than 8,000 people with financial assistance for those who can not afford it otherwise. Thanks to our generous donors, we endeavor to never turn a child away due to an inability to pay. Join us in this cause. Contact Kerry Dufour for more information.
