I am a huge supporter of the YMCA!
Childcare Provider (Former Employee), Evanston, ILSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: it was a easy job to have with young children.
Cons: it did not pay very well.
I have been a member at the YMCA for many years. I accepted the opportunity to work part-time in the Biedler Childcare Center because my children were still very young and I could bring them with me to work.

Energetic workplace with fun and hardworking staff and children
Swim Coach & Instructor (Former Employee), Evanston, ILApril 11, 2014
As a coach, my afternoons began 30 minutes before practice to get the overview of the swim team's workout before the children started arriving. I would give my lane their workout for the day and guide them through their drills. Throughout practice, I would motivate them, keep up the energy level, critique their technique, and keep them working hard. On some weekends I would work at the swim meets where I would make sure children were getting to and from the waiting area and the pool deck in time for their events. As an instructor, every 12 week session I would have set classes of varying age and swimming ability groups. I got to know the children, and based on their skill level and the YMCA's standardized method of teaching, I would make a weekly plan to help the children develop their swimming technique. I learned a great deal in patience, when to be fun and when to be stern, organization skills, and how to motivate others.
