There are many reasons why people volunteer:

  • To contribute something to society
  • Make a difference in people’s lives
  • Enhance their CV and job prospects
  • Get training and support
  • Make new friends and have fun
  • Build self-confidence
  • Develop skills and experience

In addition to these, volunteering can open up areas in your life which we know will lead to a sense of fulfilment and good citizenship.

All our volunteers will be given a full induction onto the organisation, receive training as necessary, and be fully supported by a clear line management structure. This ongoing support is a very important aspect for many of our volunteers as meaningful and valuable work needs to be delegated and overseen.

YMCA Birmingham is supported by a team of over 100 staff and volunteers, to find out how you can support your YMCA, call us on 0121 477 4644, or use the contact form above.
