Togetherhood–  “Our Y is running a nationwide program called Togetherhood. It provides Y members with an easy, fun, and rewarding way to volunteer for service projects that strengthen the community where we live. The program is led by a committee of Y members that helps organize and run four service projects a year. We are looking for Y members to join our Service Committee. Folks who are:

  • passionate about the benefits of service and volunteering;
  •  represent the diversity of our community and membership;
  • and are willing and able to be an advocate for the benefits of service with Y members and community partners.

The commitment for the members of this Service Committee will be to

  • attend a minimum number of monthly meetings (time and date TBD) for a one-year term;
  • select and lead, or co-lead, one of four community service projects each year, using the YMCA Togetherhood Toolkit;
  • and invite members, friends, and family from within their social networks
