The YMCA is a volunteer led organisation and volunteers are highly respected in our movement.

There are opportunities to be a volunteer in many of our centres, whether it be After School care, Early Childhood programmes or Fitness.

You might have governance skills you would like to share with us as a Board member, or perhaps you would like to work with young people on one of our youth programmes, camps or school holiday programmes.

In most cases, there is some great training available too!

Holiday Programme Volunteers

Our Youth & Outdoors staff are always looking for responsible, reliable and caring volunteers to help with school holiday programmes.

We provide the training, excitement and fun and it’s a great chance to gain experience working with kids and meet other volunteers.

If you are interested in seeing if volunteering at the YMCA is right for you, and you have the skills that are required for the programme then please phone Max Haraki (Oscar Manager ) on 867 9259.

Working as a volunteer can be rewarding and gives you the opportunity to gain some skills for future employment, or if you are retired and wish to meet friends in a warm, caring environment then look at joining the YMCA as a volunteer.

International Volunteer Programme

The YMCA offers a fantastic opportunity to volunteer in other international YMCA’s whilst you travel the world and experience the amazing dynamics that our YMCA organisations have to offer.

The Gisborne YMCA has opportunities for individuals to be involved in volunteer programmes in Hong Kong or England in 2017.

Are you outgoing, energetic, can multitask and love to travel, then our Volunteer Programme may be just what you’re looking for to broaden your horizons and gain valuable skills for the future.

If you would love the opportunity to volunteer with the YMCA please contact Alisha our Volunteer Coordinator marketing@ymcagisborne.nz for more information.
