“We define social responsibility as giving back and providing support to our neighbors,” said Scott Washburn, president and CEO of YMCA of Snohomish County. “One of the ways we promote this is through volunteerism that leads and supports the Y’s critical work.”

The named honorees, as identified by each YMCA of Snohomish County family branch, BBBS affiliate, and Board of Trustees, represent the best of more than 2,100 volunteers who donated a total of 42,500 hours of valuable assistance with policies, programs and activities.

Policy volunteers lead various boards and committees, while campaign volunteers lead our annual fundraising efforts. Program and youth volunteers serve in such activities as youth sports, teen programs, mentoring activities, child care, and special events.

As a cause-driven organization, the Y is able to strengthen community because of the dedicated youth, families, and individuals who share the organization’s passion.

They give their time, resources, and talents – every day in thousands of ways – because they know they can improve the lives of others while enhancing their own lives through the Y.
