Have you had an idea that you think will benefit the community, but haven’t had the chance to pursue that idea? Get in touch with a member of the team and discuss your plans and we can look to work together to ensure your idea thrives! We are here to listen to you and help you better the community you live in!
You can fundraise for YMCO Newport by hiking up Snowdon, doing a charity run, having a bake sale, zip lining or even skydiving! You can arrange your sponsorship and we can look to support your sponsor target. If you are interested in fundraising, let us know!
Alternatively, you can volunteer at events and chaperone during activities. There is no obligation for you to be involved in every event and we won’t take you for granted! Every volunteer is valuable and an integral part of the organisation. Contact us for opportunity to volunteer and add to your skills and experience!
If you would like a more dedicated position within YMCO Newport, we do have Core Volunteer roles available. If you are interested in applying please check our News & Announcements for upcoming posts or send us a cover letter with your details for us to review. We hope to hear from you soon.
Without your support, we would not be able to organise or arrange activities and events for you. Donation is key for us to help promote a cohesive and harmonious community, which we believe we are achieving! Please continue to support our goals by donating today.
