The generosity of others is at the core of our existence. It is only through the support of our many volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to give back to the communities we serve. When you volunteer at the South Suburban Y, you take an active role in bringing about meaningful, enduring change in your own community.
Current volunteer opportunities include:
