Become A Volunteer
Volunteers are essential to the success of the YMCA. Volunteering not only benefits the children, families, older adults, and programs of the YMCA, it also benefits the community and individuals that dedicate their time and energy. All that you give as a volunteer will impact the children and families of our community for a lifetime.
What are the qualifications for volunteering?
To volunteer, you must have a desire to help instill YMCA character development values in each aspect of the program you are involved in. Those values include respect, responsibility, honesty, and caring. A background check is required and will be performed by the YMCA. Volunteers must fill out an application and attend a volunteer orientation.
Where can I volunteer and with what programs?
We need volunteers in many of our programs including youth sports (coaches, referees, and site supervisors), childwatch, childcare, aquatics, afterschool and summer camp, homework tutors, wellness, health education, office work, fund raising, special events, board/committee work, and much more!

MEET OUR ADVISORY COUNCIL BOARD!
Originally from Schuylkill County of Pennsylvania, Kathleen is a graduate of Kutztown University with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration. She is currently the Senior Vice President of Marketing for First Citizens Community Bank and serves on the faculty of the American Bankers Association School of Bank Marketing and Management. Prior to joining the First Citizens team in 2001, she worked for Keystone Financial for 20 years. Kathleen resides in Mansfield with her husband, Greg and son, Ryan. She has been the Tioga County Branch Board Chair for 5 years and has served on the RVR Corporate Board for that same time period. She also serves on the Executive Committee of the RVR Corporate Board. Prior to join the board, "I did not have much experience with the Y since there was not a Y in my hometown growing up. When I lived in Muncy, I took my son for swimming lessons at the Y in Williamsport, but that was my only exposure. Since joining, I have discovered what wonderful things the Y can do for a community and for individuals of all ages and that has made me a strong advocate for the YMCA organization. I like the challenge of taking something from an idea stage and making it a reality - that fits right into my role as volunteer at the Y." Among other things, Kathleen has coordinated our 2 annual fundraising dinners and is currently very involved in Project Rebuild, our 2014-2015 capital campaign and renovation project. Her personal goal at this point is to continue to build a strong advisory board for the Tioga County Branch and to see Project Rebuild to completion. "Being a volunteer of the Tioga County Branch YMCA has been very rewarding."
