YMCA volunteers not only contribute to an organization, they build communities. Volunteers are the heart of the YMCA and together we make our Cape Breton families grow stronger and healthier. Join our Y family today.

When you volunteer with the Y, you build one of Cape Breton's oldest, most diverse charities. For more than 128 years, the YMCA has relied on volunteers like you.  YMCA volunteers contribute hundreds of hours helping to improve overall community health, supporting children and creating a legacy of giving.  The YMCA has a wide variety of volunteer opportunities to match your passion, skills and schedule. Get started today!​
