Thank you for considering the Frisco Family YMCA as the place to perform your volunteer or community service hours. Please understand that we get lots of requests to volunteer and in order to keep our members and the children in our facility safe, everyone undergoes a criminal background check before they are allowed to volunteer with us.

*Raise funds to ensure the Y is accessible to all members of the community
*Coach our sports teams and teach many of our classes
*Motivate and support youth in building the character strengths, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health, smart life choices, and the pursuit of higher education and goals
*Extend a hand to help adults who want to do more, be more or live healthier
*Advocate for the Y’s efforts to influence policies and initiatives that positively impact societal issues of importance to the nation, and your community
*Participate in opportunities to give back and support neighbors

The Y is a nonprofit like no other. Take an active role in strengthening your community.
