OPPORTUNITIES ARE EVERYWHERE
Throughout the year the Y has many events that couldn’t happen without the assistance of volunteers. Events include our Road Races, Boggle Party (literacy fundraiser), Founders Day, Healthy Kids Day, & more.
Each event is unique with fun opportunities to get involved in both the planning and execution.

Passionate volunteers are critical to the success of our annual Strong Kids Campaign, which raises money for scholarships, membership, camp, youth programs & more.
COMMUNITY HAS A VOICE
This volunteer leadership group is a subcommittee of the Northwest CT Y’s Board of Directors, and meets monthly to help set the direction and goals of the branch within the association’s wider strategic plan. Serve as both a representative of the membership & community, as well as a leader in promoting the Y within the community. Volunteers may also work on specific projects and events on behalf of the committee.
