Right here in our community, business leaders, community advocates, parents, teens and individuals who want to give back and support their neighbors, volunteer at the Y. That’s because 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.


Anyone who wishes to volunteer, must submit their clearance to the Schuylkill YMCA. These need to be completed every 2 years. If you have any further questions, please call the Y.

We require:

Child Abuse History Clearance

Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Record Check
