  • A bridging experience for students, connecting their course work to professional experience.
  • A short-term work or service opportunity for students, conducted in a real-life employment setting under the supervision of practicing professionals.
  • An experience with clearly stated goals and objectives that includes a final project demonstrating the learning accomplished in the intern’s academic discipline.
  • An opportunity that may be called by other names, such as practicum, co-op, externship or apprenticeship.

Search Volunteer Opportunities



The YMCA of Greater Indianapolis is looking for partners to work together in impacting our community. We have many ways for your company to engage and effect the community through volunteering at the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis locations.


Professional development: Volunteers develop stronger professional and leadership skills needed to advance professionally. Volunteerism can provide a high-impact and low-cost training and development experience for employees.

Personal fulfillment: Two-thirds of Generation Y professionals said they would like to volunteer with their company, but less than one-third said their companies offered compelling volunteer programs.

Positive feelings toward the company: People who frequently volunteer through their employer are more likely to feel very loyal to their company and are twice as likely to view their workplace climate as positive.

Team building: Volunteering naturally removes hierarchical barriers between employees, strengthening personal relationships and creating a tangible sense of working together toward a common goal.


We offer volunteer opportunities at all of our YMCA of Greater Indianapolis locations. We would love to connect you to determine your needs as a company and how we can match you with the best volunteer experience.
