Give the gift of time
Be a volunteer at the YMCA of Greater Brandywine
Volunteer at the Y!
Volunteer founded and volunteer led, the YMCA of Greater Brandywine depends on the generosity of more than 2,300 volunteers across Chester County to meet the needs of the children and adults we serve.
Volunteers are at the heart of the success of the YMCA of Greater Brandywine. Our volunteers serve our members and community everyday in so many ways, from assisting with canned food and toy drives, reading to and tutoring children, to teaching classes, coaching sports, and serving on boards and committees. They offer their time, their services, their talents, and their ideas.
Because of our volunteers, the YMCA of Greater Brandywine has reached new heights in success, and we have only just begun. More children, adults and seniors await our help.
"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted" -Aesop

If you'd like more information, please see the left side of the web page to contact the volunteer coordinator for your home branch.
In reference to Act 153, a new regulation that mandates clearances for adult volunteers who are individually responsible for the welfare of a child or have “direct contact with children”, you will find instructions below on how to complete the required clearances.
The YMCA of Greater Brandywine does not currently allow volunteers to fulfill court-mandated community service hours.
