      YMCA_Downtown_Ambassador_LogoYou can make a difference as a Y Ambassador.

      We are actively seeking Ambassadors to volunteer their time to make our YMCA exceptional. Being a Y Ambassador is an opportunity to give back and help others. Ambassadors work to build relationships and communities within the Y. They also act as a liaison between the members and staff. Working as a volunteer has been shown to have therapeutic benefits, and you can get personal satisfaction and enrichment while supporting others and making a difference in the Y community. Share your skills, gain valuable volunteer experience, and expand your knowledge of the Y through work with administration, members, and friends.

      If you would like to become a Y Ambassador, please contact Ariella Gonzales District Executive Director, at 719.329.7231 or [email protected].
