The Attleboro Y works side-by-side with our neighbors every day to make sure that everyone in our community has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. To do our important work, the Attleboro Y relies on support from members, donors, volunteers and community leaders.
Current Volunteer Opportunities
Community Clean Up on Earth Day: Join the Attleboro Y’s Togetherhood volunteers on Saturday, April 22nd, as part of the Attleboro Land Trust’s Spring Clean-Up event. The Y’s team of volunteers will work together to help clear fallen branches and pick up trash along the roads near the O’Donnell Preserve. We’ll meet at 9:00 a.m. at the Finberg Field parking lot on Bishop Street. Trash bags will be provided, but please bring work gloves. Families are welcome, but all children must be accompanied by an adult. For more information, contact Martha Machnik at email@example.com or 508-409-0741.
Reach & Rise Mentors: Your time makes a difference! Reach & Rise group mentoring supports youth ages 12 to 15 who may often experience social issues, poverty, community violence, educational disparities. As a group mentor, you can build a supportive, consistent relationship with a group of young people. You will help to improve each mentee’s self-esteem, confidence, sense of belonging, decision-making skills, school performance and relationships. With the support of Y staff and a social worker, two Reach & Rise Mentors work together with a group of six mentees over the course of 16 weeks. For more information, contact Mackenzie Brown at (508) 409-0736 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Togetherhood: Togetherhood is 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! Interested in joining the Togetherhood committee or volunteer team? Contact Martha at email@example.com.
Program Volunteers: If you’d like to work directly with youth, adults, or families, consider a regular volunteer position in one of our youth, sports, childcare, or wellness programs. To learn more, contact Meghan Hamilton at (508) 409-0733 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Facility & Grounds Projects: If you’re handy, like to work with your hands, or simply like to see the physical impact you’ve had on your community, the Y has a variety of projects that could use your skills and talents at our two branches and at our camps. We’re happy to work with school groups, scouts, and groups of co-workers who’d like to team up on a specific project. If you’re interested in any facility and grounds projects, please contact Mark Murry at email@example.com.
Please note: In keeping with the Attleboro Y’s Child Protection Policy, volunteers are required to complete a CORI and SORI screening.
