Togetherhood invites Y members to activate their social responsibility by participating in the Y's cause to strengthen community. Togetherhood provides Y members with fun, convenient and rewarding ways to give back and support their neighbors.

Togetherhood is the YMCA's Signature Program for Social Responsibility. This program invites Y members to lead and participate in volunteer service projects that benefit the community where they live.

The program is run through individual Y branches as a partnership between a committee of members and a Y Staff Advisor. It is designed to be a simple, fun and rewarding way for members to identify ways that they can give back and support their neighbors through their own ideas, skills and energy, and the network of the Y.

sample COLE YMCA projects include:

  • Yard work and maintenance, landscaping, mowing
  • Painting and general upkeep of outside of home
  • Helping someone move
  • Giving a ride to a doctor's appointment
  • Taking flowers to others that need their spirits lifted
