How to Get Involved

Volunteers can serve the YWCA in a variety of ways:

Recurring Individual Volunteers: Ready to jump right in? We'd love to have you join us in 2023! Volunteers seeking to serve more than once are required to complete our application process which includes a criminal background check, reference checks, and a one-time orientation. This process ensures the safety of the clients we serve and is mandatory. This opportunity is ideal for individuals looking to volunteer long-term and make a significant impact in our community. Download our volunteer application by clicking here.

Single Service Opportunity: Have a busy schedule? Join us for a one-time opportunity! This is a great way to fulfill service hours or learn more about the YWCA before committing to a recurring volunteer opportunity. Many of our long-time volunteers started out with a single service opportunity!

Group or Corporate Volunteers: Are you a member of a service organization, church, company, or other group that is looking to serve our community? YWCA has a project for you! Groups are perfect for large-scale projects and making a big impact in a short amount of time, while building relationships within your team.

Interested in organizing a group volunteer project? Please contact Jessie Perry, Director of Business Operations, at jperry@ywcaknox.com or 865-523-6126.
