As one of the leading nonprofits and volunteer-led organization, the Salina Family YMCA is a dynamic association of men, women, and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. We offer opportunities for individuals, families, and organizations to volunteer in ways that let you connect and develop meaningful relationships, all while making an impact in the community you live in and care about. 

At the Y, you'll be part of a cause to strengthen the foundations of our community, championed by volunteers since our local start in 1886. Join us and be part of an effort to give back 1,000,000 HOURS to our community annually. It is through the commitment and dedication of volunteers that the Y achieves its mission every day.

Together, we'll change lives and change our community.
