Becky Shotwell, Volunteer

Maing Our World A Better Place

Becky Shotwell has been committed to volunteer work most of her life. So when she moved to the Mukilteo community and joined the Y, she asked about volunteering.

With a background in nutrition, Becky volunteered for the Actively Changing Together (ACT!) program, which teaches families about healthy eating and active living. She also volunteers with the Teen Department, helping with Friday Night Live and mentors youth with their school work. In addition, Becky was a volunteer campaigner for the Invest in Youth program, helping the Y to raise funds that support youth programming and scholarships.

“I like helping people and giving back to my community,” she said. “If everyone volunteered ten hours per month, what a better place our world would be.”


At the Y, we exist to strengthen community. Together with people like you, we nurture the potential of kids, help people understand and improve their health, and provide opportunities to give back and support our neighbors.
