Working for the YMCA is overall a fun experience. I started off as a volunteer and have been there ever since. The Y allows and encourages their employee to develop meaningful friendships with one another; I have made some of my best friends working through them! It also feels great to work for a non-profit whose main goal is to serve inner-city youth and help kids in general reach happy and healthy lives. I do wish, however, employees were better informed of their benefits. Information about employee benefits always seems to remain undisclosed. Even after incessant questioning.
As a first time job, I enjoy working at the YMCA. It is close to my house, has a good support system, and features many amazing benefits, even for a part-time worker! Though my branch had some management and financial problems, I am supported by my coworkers, and we have created a sort of family. After a year, I have determined that it is time for me to move on, and so I am resigning, but I'm grateful for the opportunity I had to work here, because it gave me the start I needed.
The YMCA has presented me with leadership opportunities, professionalism, and many new connections within my community - and I'm not even an adult yet! I began working for the Y in early 2017 (my first job besides babysitting), first as a swim instructor, and now as both an instructor and a lifeguard. This has allowed me to grow in my teaching abilities, meet new young people and watch them learn, and spend more time in the water! I enjoy my interactions with co-workers and diverse community members, and I get just as much out of my employment here as I put in.
