Joining a committee or the board is an excellent way to get involved by contributing your time, talent and expertise to support our mission! Committees typically meet on a monthly basis for one hour, depending upon current board or association initiatives, activities & events. The board meets bi-monthly on the last Monday of each odd month for two hours.

Below are descriptions of committees that YWCA is currently seeking members for. If you'd like to volunteer on a committee, please complete this form.

If you are interested in joining a committee but do not see one that seems like a good fit, please email volunteers@ywcaerew.org to inquire. We may have other opportunities that could be a good fit.
