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!

REACH & RISE MENTORS: Your time makes a difference! Reach & Rise group mentoring supports youth in grades 5-8 who may often experience social issues, poverty, community violence, or 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, two Reach & Rise Mentors work together with a group of six mentees over the course of 16 weeks. Mentors must be 21 or older.  Please contact Brian Gannon at briangannon@attleboroymca.org or (508) 409-0734 for more information. To apply to be a mentor, please fill out our Volunteer Mentor Application.

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 Murray at mmurray@attleboroymca.org.

Please note: In keeping with the Attleboro Y’s Child Protection Policy, volunteers are required to complete a CORI and SORI screening.
