Ambassador Training

This training is designed for members who wish to take a more active role in the Y’s mission of service. The training will focus on building community Y relationships and member connections. Members who would like to volunteer in the group exercise or Wellness Center are encouraged to attend this training. Contact the front desk for more information.

Volunteers have been the Walla Walla Y’s greatest strength for over 120 years. They are a necessary component in effectively reaching out to create a healthy community. Without volunteers we would be unable to successfully address some of the key challenges facing our community today.

We believe in the power of individuals to make positive changes in the lives of others. Volunteers can contribute their unique talents and skills to help children deepen their positive values, commitment to service and motivation to learn; help families build stronger bonds, achieve greater work-life balance and become more engaged in their communities; help individuals improve their well-being and connect with people who care.
