Do I have to be a member in order to volunteer?
No, you do not need to be a member to volunteer at a family center.
What if I need to break my commitment or would like to change my role?
If you can no longer volunteer with us, please let your supervisor know as soon as possible. If you're not enjoying what you are currently doing, please talk with your supervisor about other available roles.
If I volunteer at the Y, does it fulfill court-appointed community service hours?
No, the YMCA of Central Florida doesn't offer any volunteer opportunities for those looking to complete community service hours as part of a sentence or legal requirement.
Is there a dress code?
Clothing should be as tidy and clean as possible, and shoes should be closed-toe.

You can dress up for special events but extremely inappropriate and/or graphic clothing is prohibited.
