Want to get involved?

From volunteering to attending one of our events, there are other ways you can be involved in helping us achieve our mission.

"A real strength of SYMCA is the large number of volunteers who work with staff to deliver services to young people often in challenging environments …Volunteers are an important resource…there is no differentiation between volunteers and staff in terms of support, encouragement and development opportunities offered to individuals."

Bright ideas?

If you're interested in offering support in another way, please contact us and we'll be happy to discuss other options with you.
