Whether you’re at the front desk or in the pool, each and every day of work will positively affect the lives of people in your community.

“When I applied for a summer job at the Y, I learned how much they could work with my school schedule. During my three years at the Y I really started to understand how much they do for our community. It’s not even a job anymore, it’s a passion. It’s helped me be a better person.” – Anthony, YMCA Employee

“I grew as a young leader. The skills that the Y teaches will stay with me forever, no matter what I choose to do in the future. Working at the Y is like being part of a family.” -- Aaliah,YMCA Lifeguard
