During the week of April 14 – 20 we celebrate the incredible individuals that devote their time and energy to making the YMCA of Fredericton a welcoming and dynamic gathering space for our community.

The theme for National Volunteer Week 2024 is Every Moment Matters. This theme highlights the importance of every volunteer and each contribution they make to our YMCA. Our volunteers share with us their precious resources of time, empathy, creativity and skill. In turn, our volunteers strengthen inclusivity and the wellbeing of our community.

You have a lot to offer the YMCA. No matter how you help, you’ll make a big difference in the lives of people in your community.

Each year more than 350 YMCA Volunteers contribute thousands of hours helping the Fredericton YMCA to build strong kids, strong families and strong communities. Whether you want to help people improve their overall health, coach children and youth, or work as a policy volunteer, the YMCA has a wide variety of opportunities to match your passion, skills and schedule.

Some benefits of volunteering:

  • Knowing you are making a difference in your community;
  • Developing new skills, increased confidence and enhanced leadership abilities;
  • Making new friends from all walks of life;
  • Gaining work experience;
  • Being part of an organization with a history of giving back to its community;
  • Gaining hours towards school co-op programs.
