Do you love fun? Who doesn't, right? What about games? Do you love games? How about science projects and artsy crafty stuff?

If you answered yes to all of the above (heck, two out of three ain't bad), you should probably apply to join our After-school Program Staff!

We are hiring now at all levels for the start of school. The YMCA's After School Programs are growing fast (because we are just that good), and we are seeking outstanding staff to support our expanding school-age offerings and grow into leadership roles.

We are looking for staff to ensure our kiddos are safe, secure and engaged while teaching them our core values: respect, responsibility, honesty and caring.

Help us make a positive difference in the lives of those we serve each day in our programs.
