recycleThe 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

PROGRAM & EVENT VOLUNTEERS: If you’d like to volunteer your time with a specific program or event at the Attleboro YMCA, please contact Cyndee Goodinson-Lindsey at (508) 409-0767 or

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

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

Community Food & Coat Drive

Help keep our neighbors fed and warm this winter!

The Y is now accepting nonperishable food items as well as gently used coats, jackets, hats, gloves, and scarves for our neighbors in need.  All food items will go to the Hebron Food Pantry in Attleboro. All coats and other warm clothing will be delivered to the Saint John’s Clothing Center in Attleboro.

Community Coat Drive: November 16-December 1

Donations may be made at the Attleboro Y’s Downtown Branch at 63 North Main Street. Families who are participating in the Scholastic Support Center may bring their donations to the Pleasant Street Branch.

Volunteer for the Reach & Rise Mentoring Program

Your time makes a difference! The Y is currently looking for adult volunteers to serve as mentors in our Reach & Rise Group Mentoring Program. By serving as a mentor, you can help a lasting, positive impact on kids in our community.

The Reach & Rise Group Mentoring Program 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 or (508) 409-0734 for more information. To apply to be a mentor, please fill out our Volunteer Mentor Application.
