Thank you for your interest in volunteering with YWCA Madison. Volunteers are an important part of our team and critical to meeting our mission.

There are many ways you can volunteer and we try to match volunteers interests with our needs. Unfortunately we sometimes can’t match volunteers because we either have enough help or because a person’s skills don’t match our needs. When this happens we will let you know and keep you name in case future opportunities emerge.

Review the current list of volunteer opportunities. If you see something you like fill out our online volunteer application.

If you have any questions or would like further information please contact: Maggie Porter Kratz at 608.257.1436, option 2.
