Gloucester County YMCA

Part of the YMCA of the Pines


The YMCA is a not-for-profit, volunteer-driven organization. By becoming a volunteer, you can positively impact lives right in your own community.  Volunteering for the YMCA is fun and rewarding.  You will become part of the Y family as you make new friends, gain valuable experience, and feel a sense of pride and accomplishment!

Volunteers of the Y:

  1. Lead our Board of Directors and committees
  2. Raise funds to ensure the Y is accessible to all members of the community
  3. Coach our sports teams
  4. Motivate and support youth
  1. Extend a hand to help adults who want to do more, be more or live healthier
  2. Advocate for the Y’s efforts to influence policies and initiatives that positively impact our community
  3. Participate in opportunities to give back and support neighbors

A volunteer partnership with the Y is not just a promise to serve, but also a promise to deliver positive personal and social changes.  We offer opportunities for business leaders, community members, parents, teens and individuals to give back and support their neighbors.  By volunteering, you are giving men, women and children of all ages and from all backgrounds the resources and support needed to learn, grow and thrive.

How can you become a Y Volunteer?

The YMCA believes that an on-the-job experience will benefit the student, the community, and the Y.  An internship with the Y offers a unique experience where college students can interact with business leaders, learn the ins-and-outs of a non-profit and help to give back to the community.

We are a charitable association dedicated to building a healthy spirit, mind, and body. Part of a world-wide movement, we put Christian principles into practice through programs that promote good health, strong families, youth leadership, community development, and international understanding. YMCAs are open to men, women, and children of all ages, incomes, abilities, races, and religions.

-YMCA Mission Statement

The Gloucester County YMCA is committed to protecting the children we serve. While we cannot eliminate all threats, we want to do what we can to ensure that the children in our care are safe. When entering the Y all members, participants and guests must have a valid picture ID which will be scanned through a national child abuse database. If a sex offender match occurs, the YMCA reserves the right to cancel membership, end program participation, and remove visitation access. We appreciate your cooperation.
