Fundraise for us

This photo is from our Volunteer Celebration, which you can read about on our blog.

We greatly rely on volunteers in supporting our work here at YMCA Edinburgh. Last year we had 132 volunteers that have helped us in various roles who together have committed over 9,863 hours. From the Board of Management to Mentors - Volunteers are the backbone of our organisation. We are committed to ensuring your time at our organisation is as helpful to you as it is to us and try to support our volunteers throughout their time with us. 

Some projects such as our Plusone Mentoring programme are continuously looking for volunteers, whilst other positions are available on adhoc basis. To find out which Volunteering Opportunities are available please visit our Volunteering page or get in touch with us using the 'Contact Us' details below.
