Jack Willis-Volunteer-Kelowna Family Y-YMCA

Volunteer of the Month Kelowna Family Y

Jack Willis

Jack is a popular volunteer for Teen Takeover on Friday nights at the Kelowna Family YMCA. His  job includes supervising the gym and engaging with youth to develop meaningful relationships with our members. The only time Jack has ever missed a Friday night shift was because he fell ill, and even then he messaged his supervisor from the hospital to provide a heads up that he could not work his shift. Now that’s dedication!

Ethan Bulcock

Ethan has recently finished his second summer as a volunteer with youth summer camps at the H2O Adventure + Fitness Centre. Over the past two years he has increased the amount of time he spends volunteering and the responsibilities asked of him by camp leaders. He is a dedicated and helpful addition to the child and youth team.
