Many respond to the call to serve as a volunteer and those who do are making a difference in the lives of others.  As a volunteer you will be able to play a key role, as part of a team.  Without volunteers the work of the YMCA would cease!


Our younger volunteers can also add all their voluntary hours toward their Saltire Awards total. 


People volunteer for a variety of reasons - but usually it to help others.  In the process, however, volunteers find that they benefit from volunteering themselves.  In many ways volunteering with the YMCA is a fellowship exchange between other Christians, members, the local community and yourself.


Whilst it may appear simple, it is indeed a good example of Christian service: the more you give the more you receive.  A few reason for volunteering with the YMCA are:


you can share your gifts and skills

you can develop leadership skills

you will develop a great sense of satisfaction

you will be recognised for what you do

you will be making an impact on other people

you will learn new skills

you will be regularly challenged

you will make new friends

your career prospects will be enhanced

you will be helping others

you will feel needed

you will have fun

you will be part of a supportive team

your talents will be appreciated

you will make a difference
