The YMCA of Snohomish County honored its outstanding policy, program, youth, and financial development volunteers at a special recognition breakfast June 13 at the Everett Golf & Country Club.

This community event honors the wonderful contribution of volunteers who support the YMCA of Snohomish County. More than 120 members of the community, board members, friends of the Y, and staff were on hand to celebrate the volunteer accomplishments achieved during 2017-2018.

The named honorees, as identified by each YMCA of Snohomish County branch, BBBS affiliate, and the Board of Trustees, represent the best of more than 2,450 committed volunteers who donated a total of 42,112 hours of valuable assistance with policies, programs, and activities in 2017.

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, childcare, and special events.
