YWCA believes everyone should have a chance to make a difference and we have the perfect opportunity! We are seeking 100 community-minded volunteers to join the YWCA Volunteer Network!

The Volunteer Network is a working social club associated with YWCA that provides a variety of events and projects to engage in. And when restrictions on gathering are lifted, there will be casual events at YWCA with food, drink, and networking. The Volunteer Network will also have a private social media group, and some cool swag.

What do you have to get involved?
