The YMCA depends entirely on the good will and commitment of its volunteers to deliver its services. It is essential therefore that effective volunteer recruitment and support systems are in place, including a clear, well understood organisational structure with sound reporting mechanisms.
Kilmarnock YMCA utilises the skills and experience of volunteers to help deliver its services and currently provides volunteer placements for 10 local people. Volunteer roles vary and include youth work, drop in support, administration and gardening. We work closely with East Ayrshire Volunteer Centre and receive referrals from the centre to fill any volunteering vacancies.
Volunteers who give their time to work with us are valued and can benefit from a range of supports including induction and ongoing training opportunities e.g. an annual residential team building event, access to the wider YMCA network of volunteers, help with CV and job applications.
If you are interested in a volunteering position, you can contact us directly for an application form or contact us via Maureen Murphy at the Volunteer Centre.
