Bring lasting personal and social change to others.

Social Responsibility is one of the three focus areas of the YMCA of Austin. Generosity toward others is at the core of the Y’s existence. It is through the support of our volunteers that the YMCA of Austin is able to give back to the community.

Empowering young people to reach their full potential through Texas Youth & Government (YG).

Make a positive impact on tomorrow’s young leaders and amplify youth voice through your support of Texas Youth & Government. 3,000 teens in the youth-led model government leadership club will make history this year by writing and presenting legislative bills, state affairs proposals, and conducting mock trials at the 2023-24 District & State Conferences.

Each Texas-sized conference will require a host of volunteers to be successful. If you have an interest in empowering the nation’s future leaders or a passion for civic engagement at large, we invite you to explore the opportunities for individuals, teams, employers and more:
