Wednesday, January 9, 2013 • 2:08pm
The Madison Area YMCA invites civic-minded, results-oriented people to put their skills to work and make a meaningful impact in the community in 2013 by joining the Y’s Volunteer Program.
“Madison Area YMCA volunteers play a critical role in the daily operation and success of the Y,” said Volunteer Coordinator Carey Ahsler. “By sharing their time and talent, volunteers ensure that the Y continues to provide the community with high-quality programs, services and facilities.”
Volunteers assist in programs, help in offices, serve on boards and committees, set policy, raise money, help maintain the facility and gain work experience. They may also be able to accumulate valuable hours for service groups such as Key Club, National Honor Society, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Greek organizations and houses of worship groups.
Maria Sanin, 17, a Chatham High School senior, and Jack Kenny, 17, a Madison High School senior, are two valued volunteers who have made significant contributions to the community through their extensive volunteer efforts at the Madison Area YMCA.
Whether volunteers have one hour a week or a few hours a month, they help make a difference. There’s something for everyone. The Madison Area YMCA has opportunities available for people of all ages, backgrounds and interests including greet members at the front desk, perform administrative duties, work in Kids Central and in Kirby Center classrooms, beautify facilities/grounds, help with the Annual Campaign or assist with Dance, Performing Arts and Sports programs.
The Y is a volunteer-led and volunteer-based organization. As a nonprofit charitable, community service organization, the Y believes that lasting personal and social change can come about only when the community works together.
