Our community league operates through the contributions of volunteers. With your help, we can do amazing things!

A volunteer activity is required (or a cheque in lieu of actual service) if you register for our community programs. There are also opportunities for you to become a member of the Yellowbird East Community League Board of Directors. Please look on our contacts page for vacancies.
