Y Volunteer?

The YMCA is a volunteer-led and volunteer-based organization. The work that volunteers do enables the YMCA to continue providing the community with high-quality facilities, programs and services. You can assist in programs, raise money, help in our offices and even set policy. Many serve on boards and committees to ensure our programs are meeting community needs.

As a non-profit charity, the Y operates with a volunteer Board of Directors that, with the president & CEO, provides overall leadership and carries the fiduciary responsibility of the organization.

The Madison Area YMCA is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of children in our programs. We hold all volunteers, regardless of position, to the highest possible standards. We require all volunteers to be screened regularly and sign a code of conduct. All volunteers will be monitored when interacting with children in our programs. We take any inappropriate interactions between children and volunteers very seriously and will fully cooperate with authorities in any case of abuse.

Board of Directors

The Madison Area YMCA is led by a volunteer Board of Directors who lend their time, talent and expertise to ensure that the Y fulfills its philanthropy mission and that Y operations are efficient and prudent.
