Volunteer at the Y

Across the United States, more than 500,000 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 10,000 neighborhoods nationwide, we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but 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.  For more information about volunteer opportunities at the Hampshire Regional YMCA, contact Sovina Mansfield, HR Coordinator.

Our Board – Connected and Cause-Driven Leaders

Y board leaders build connections in their communities, across our Movement, even globally, to make positive lasting change in this world. If you’re interested in volunteering for our Board or a Committee, please contact our YMCA.

Our Board works diligently to ensure the Hampshire Regional YMCA is meeting our mission and providing necessary services in a responsible manner to our community. Our new Strategic Plan has designated our three main areas of focus as:

  1. We will strengthen connections and relationships with and between our members
  2. We will increase our mission-based efforts in the community
  3. We will strengthen our Board to better meet our mission and strategies
