Volunteer Opportunities

At the Mattoon YMCA we rely on great volunteers to help with several of our programs.  Many opportunities are seasonal such as coaching for youth sports, Girls on the Run and STRIDE.  Special events at the Y are made spectacular with the help of our volunteers.  Run for the Bagel, Last Chance Tri and May Merriment are a few examples.

We are currently looking for volunteers to help with our 2017 May Merriment Event.  May Merriment is our one fundraiser each year, where proceeds are used for our Membership for All Program.  This allows anyone in our community the opportunity to be a member, regardless of income level.  Youth may take swim lessons and play sports while adults become healthier through their Y membership.  If you would like to help with this year’s May Merriment Event, please contact Sarah Dowell at 217-234-9494 or

Volunteers are needed the the evening of the event, May 6th, and throughout the week to set up and tear down.  The following link will offer descriptions of volunteer positions for our May Merriment event.
