The YWCA of Cortland relies on the commitment of dedicated community volunteers to meet the needs of our clients and program participants. In fact, if it weren’t for the support of volunteers – like you – some of our programs would not even exist. Stop by or call our front desk to learn more about the volunteer opportunities.Volunteering at the YWCA has many benefits: friendship and camaraderie, helping the women of our community and their families, and strengthening the YWCA’s commitment to our mission.The YWCA is always looking for volunteers we can count on to help us meet the needs of our clients and program participants. Our programs are varied – and many! We have Child Care Programs, Bridges for Kids, Model Moms, Aid to Victims of Violence, Health & Fitness, annual events, and fundraisers.
