The Y’s Togetherhood program connects people from all backgrounds to plan and carry out volunteer projects that address a real need in their community.
Benefits of Volunteering
Volunteering can improve personal well-being, build relationships, and provide an outlet to discover purpose. Research shows that volunteers experience wellness benefits, including lower depression, improved mood and self-esteem, less stress, better heart health and lower mortality rates.
How it Works
A Y staff advisor guides a committee of Y members who plan and lead volunteer service projects. A comprehensive resource toolkit ensures Togetherhood committees are supported each step of the way, from planning the year of service to running projects to reporting and celebrating their successes.
How to Get Involved
The Y is mobilizing volunteers who are using their creativity, passion and hard work to transform communities. We invite you to join us! With Togetherhood, there are opportunities to serve on a committee throughout the year or volunteer on individual projects that interest you.
