YMCA coach talking to a group of children during flag football game outside


At the Y, we're more than a gym, we're a community! Here you are part of something bigger than yourself. Over 400 staff and 600 volunteers are ready to teach, coach, and care for our over 20,000 members.

The Sheboygan County YMCA is a cause-driven, non-profit organization that strengthens the foundations of our community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. We seek volunteers who desire to join the Y movement and be part of our community of service.

At the Y, a volunteer is anyone who performs a task at the direction and the behalf of the Y without compensation or special member discounts. Y volunteers have fun!
