Muddy boots

This time of year brings with it a mixture of muddy and wet footwear.  We understand that this can not be helped at times, but do ask that you respect our facilities by removing wet and dirty footwear prior to entering our facilities.

We want to keep the YMCA a clean and safe place for everyone, including you.  Thank you for your co-operation.

Have you ever thought about Volunteering?

The YMCA is a great place to share your skills and expertise across a wide platform working with people of all ages and abilities and from all walks of life.

Volunteering opens opportunities to interact, teach and up-skill, whilst working with your community.

 Help the YMCA build strong kids, strong families and a strong Gisborne Community, building you a better YMCA.

The YMCA Gisborne values our volunteers across the organisation and are thankful for their on-going support and dedication to delivering quality programmes throughout Gisborne.

If you are thinking volunteering could be something you are interested in, or know someone who has a couple of hours to spare to share with our facility please click here for an application pack and be a part of a great place, doing great things in a great community.
