What would you do to make our community better?

You may have joined the Y as a place to improve your well-being, help your kids learn and grow, or connect with others who share your interests. Now, your membership can mean even more. At the Y, we’re dedicated to strengthening community by giving back and supporting our neighbors. 

As a part of the leading charity committed to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, you can play a role in making our community stronger. We know that members like you have lots of ideas and the desire to reach out to make positive changes in our community.

That’s why we invite you to participate in Togetherhood, a program that gives Y members the opportunity to select, plan and lead meaningful community service projects that benefit people and organizations right here in our neighborhood.

Collecting school supplies, donating blood, or running a park clean-up are just some of the countless ways Y members and their friends and families can come together in service to their community.

Join us in giving back

There are two ways to participate:


As a member of the Service Committee, you’ll serve for a term of one year to plan and run projects that help strengthen our community.


Service projects are designed to make a meaningful impact while being rewarding, convenient and fun!

Good for others. Good for you.

Participating in the Togetherhood program gives you the chance to do good by helping our neighbors receive the support they need to feel healthy, connected and secure. Plus, contributing your time and talents for the good of others can enhance your own well-being!

Meet people who are excited to better understand our community’s challenges and develop creative ways to meet them.
