The YMCA has been supporting young people in Scarborough for nearly 170 years.
We exist to provide opportunities for anyone (young and not so young) to gain confidence, skills and experience in a friendly and safe environment. As a registered charity (number 250257) and, with such a small staff team, we rely heavily on volunteers to be able to do this.
Please consider supporting us by becoming a volunteer in one of the following areas:
Have you a skill or talent that you can pass on to young people? Help to deliver sessions for young people on Tuesday, Thursday and/or Friday evenings under the guidance of the session leader.
YMCA Theatre Front of House
Helping to ensure that audience members coming to our theatre have an enjoyable and safe visit. Tasks include being part of a team that takes tickets, serves drinks and ice-creams, programmes etc.
Dressing Room Chaperone
Ensuring young people’s well-being throughout a performance.
Leisure Centre Coffee Bar
Help us deliver the best service possible to our customers at busy times. Serving hot and cold drinks, sweets etc.
Take out leaflets and posters to local businesses to promote the opportunities we offer. A lovely task for someone who likes to get outside and meet people.
YMCA Programmes Committee
Suggest and discuss ideas for new activities; review existing activities; be part of the YMCA’s planning and management team.
We receive no funding from local nor regional government and must raise all the money we need to do what we do. For more information, click here.

Suitably experienced professional people are sought to join our Board of Management. Responsible for setting Scarborough YMCA’s strategy and policies.
