Melcor YMCA at Crowfoot Youth Volunteer: Katie Humnycki

Why do you volunteer?

I volunteer because I genuinely love helping people and seeing them succeed.

Why do you volunteer with the YMCA specifically?

I volunteer with the YMCA because I love all of the work they do for kids and for charity. A huge part all throughout my life has been looking after others so I think that because the YMCA values match up with mine so well, this is the best place for me to volunteer.

What is your favorite thing about volunteering?

My favourite thing about volunteering would definitely have to be the people. I’ve met so many wonderful people I am glad to now call my friends. Everybody at the YMCA is so genuine and kind. I’ve built many strong relationships with the kids as well and I wouldn’t trade that for the world.

What is your YMCA Story?

My YMCA story is that I took all of my swim lessons at the Crowfoot YMCA and I did many of their day camps in the summer as well when I was younger. It’s been a huge part of my life so I figured I’d give back as much as I can, and try to give the kids I teach the same¬†wonderful of memories I have.
