Action Teams

With more than 70 volunteers working on all of YPW’s programs and events, joining an action team is one of the best ways to gain value from your YPW membership. We’ve designed a brief process to help our members become volunteers and find the best fit for you, whether you want to use your existing skills and connections or create new ones. Under the direction of YPW staff leadership, each team has a chair, vice chair and secretary that serve as the leadership of each group. Most teams meet once per month for about an hour.
