As a community service organization, we depend on volunteers to assist with YMCA programs, special events and day to day activities. Many programs simply would not be possible without the assistance of volunteers. Thank you to all our volunteers.

Interested volunteers should complete the following:

Drop it off at the Darien YMCA Front Desk or mail it to:
Darien YMCA, 2420 Post Road, Darien, CT 06820.

Volunteers will be subject to a background check.



All volunteer opportunities are open to ages 12 to adult (unless noted otherwise).
