When you volunteer at the Y, you provide leadership and talent that are vital to empowering people and communities to learn, grow and thrive.
Volunteer at the Y
Across the Santa Maria valley, thousands of business leaders, community advocates, parents, teens and individuals who want to give back and support their neighbors volunteer at the Y.
That’s because in our community we have the presence and partnerships to both promise and deliver positive, personal and social change.
With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, Y volunteers give men, women and children of all ages and from all walks of life the resources and support they
need to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.
The Y is a Nonprofit Like no Other
