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
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!
Togetherhood November Service Project:
Leaf-Raking Community Project
Saturday, November 11, 9am-12pm
The Togetherhood team is working with the Attleboro Alumni
Association on its Fifth Annual Leaf Raking Event on Saturday,
November 11th. As part of this event, volunteers work together to rake the yards of Attleboro veterans and the elderly who are unable to do the job or have a hardship paying for this service. Last year 36 yards were cleaned by 150 caring individuals. This year, we’d like to help even more of our neighbors!
Volunteer. If you’d like to lend your muscles and community spirit to our leaf-raking project, please sign up at our Online Volunteer Sign-Up Sheet.
Donate. If you cannot join us on November 11th, you can contribute by donating leaf bags in the YMCA lobbies to support the effort.
Interested in joining the Togetherhood committee or volunteer team? Contact Martha at email@example.com.
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 Susan Mastandrea at firstname.lastname@example.org or 508-409-0765.
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 email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: In keeping with the Attleboro Y’s Child Protection Policy, volunteers are required to complete a CORI and SORI screening.
