Volunteer in a YMCA Shop

We have over 1200 volunteers in YMCA shops around the country. Our volunteers come from all walks of life and include students who want to contribute to the community, people who are retired and have some time to spare, and young people who want to gain retail experience to improve their CV. If you’re interested in volunteering, speak to someone behind the counter at your nearest shop or contact our retail team on 0845 601 0728 or shop@ymca.org.uk
