Serving Others to Make a Difference

With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, there are countless opportunities for you to join us in delivering our mission. When you volunteer at the Y, your time has a positive impact in your own neighborhood and makes your community safer and stronger. It’s only when we join together that we can create lasting personal and social change.

Become a Y Volunteer!

Volunteers are at the heart of the Y. We were founded by a volunteer and we continue to be governed by our Volunteer Board of Directors.
A great many of our programs for children, adults and families are only possible because of the incredible people in our community who volunteer their time.

The Mankato Family YMCA could not function without the help of dedicated volunteers. There is something for everyone at the Y. A small investment of your time will have a great impact on the individuals enrolled in Y programs.
