VOLUNTEERS WANTED

YMCA North Tyneside is a Voluntary Sector Organisation undertaking youth and community programme work in communities based in North Tyneside, South Tyneside, and Teesdale. To make the greatest impact in our communities we partner with volunteers in the communities we serve to extend our reach.

WHY VOLUNTEER?

There are 3 simple, intertwined reasons to consider volunteering for YMCA:

1.

Volunteers help YMCA to deliver services that otherwise we would be unable to offer.

2.

Volunteers not only help other people, but the experience of volunteering is potentially one of the most rewarding things anyone can do.

3.

By creating opportunities to volunteer, we believe that we will help build supportive, inclusive and energising local communities, where young people can truly thrive.

As well as making new friends and learning new skills, you’ll be helping your local community grow, creating a promising future for people within North Tyneside.
