Whether you are a coach or counselor, a painter or a planter, a board member or a meal maker, the Y community needs you. Apply for a volunteer opportunity today.
At the Y, safety is our #1 priority. To protect our volunteers and our program participants, the Y now requires, as mandated by Pennsylvania State Law (PA Act 153), both the Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearances and Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Record checks for certain volunteer positions which require the volunteer to have regular/habitual interaction with children as well as authority on behalf of the parent.
All clearance results must be submitted to [email protected] or mailed to Mission Advancement Volunteer Coordinator Foster Plaza 10, 680 Andersen Dr, Ste 400 Pittsburgh, PA 15220 prior to the start of volunteering.
We sincerely appreciate your willingness to step up for your community and thank you for your patience during the volunteer approval process. You will be contacted with further instruction after all required clearances have been received and reviewed. Once approved, your application is valid for 5 years.
For any questions, concerns or status updates on your application, please email [email protected] or call 412-227-5312.
