The YMCA values it’s history of partnering with volunteers.  There are many benefits of volunteering including learning new skills, sharing your knowledge and expertise, meeting new people, finding a place to belong and making new friends all while helping your community improve it’s overall health. All volunteers receive training to ensure the safe and efficient operations in our child care, employment, camp, youth and health and fitness programs. Volunteering is a great way to obtain your Nova Scotia high-school credit hours, complete a student placement, try something new, make new friends or transition to a new life-stage.  The YMCA has a variety of rewarding volunteer opportunities available.
