Volunteering is a great way to give back to your community, and we have fun and meaningful opportunities at the Y. You can coach or mentor one of our youth and teen programs or camps. We have plenty of opportunities in our youth sports programs, camps or clinics throughout the year. Have a specific skill you would like to share? Let us know and we will work with you. To get started, give us a call at 309-344-1324 or email us at info@knoxymca.org.

The Knox County YMCA is volunteer founded and volunteer led by a Board of Directors. Collectively, YMCA's are the largest not-for-profit community service organization in the United States. This stature cannot occur without the dedication of some 600,000 volunteers nationwide. Currently, there are over 200 volunteers on an annual basis who give their time to sustain the operations of the Knox County YMCA.

Our Success Stories

After six months of personal training sessions, one of our clients tripped and fell at church, causing her to need a knee replacement! After getting up from that fall, she told everyone that if that would have happened one year ago, she probably would have been really bad off, but since she had been working with a trainer she was stronger and able to recover from that fall with no problems! Personal training works!
