Why do you volunteer?

I volunteer because I enjoy helping others. When I volunteer at the YMCA I am constantly meeting new people and gaining life skills.


Why do you volunteer with the YMCA specifically?

I volunteer at the YMCA because I enjoy being a part of a non-for profit organization that is dedicated to healthy lifestyles. I also enjoy being a part of the Flames Fridays where kids can come and just have fun.


What is your favorite thing about volunteering?

My favorite thing is interacting with all of the energetic and cheerful kids. Through my experiences at the YMCA I have learned many things about interacting with others.


What is your YMCA story? What brought you here

One of my first experiences with the YMCA was when I attended a Climbing Class at the South Health Campus. I discovered that there were volunteer opportunities at the facility for different youth programs. After I attended my first Flames Friday, I realised that I enjoy working with kids and helping others. The people at the South Health Campus helped to persuade me into becoming a part of the amazing team. One thing that I like about the YMCA is that it is a facility for everyone and it isn’t just catered to a specific gender or age group; it is one big community.
