The job turnover for the Central Florida YMCA was shockingly high, and was only trumped by the turnover of their customers. That was my experience.
Unfortunately, as with many situations, the wrong people get involved when times get tight. The YMCA of Central Florida makes a decent profit, but at the expense of customer satisfaction and overall quality of service. Somewhere along the way, survival took place of product, and they are left with a fairly unbalanced system that only survives because of their preexisting relationships/commitments with schools and communities.
I was part of a specialty program name READS! My boss at the YMCA never visited except the one time it was required of him. He didn't even know where we were located in the school. He was scarcely available seemingly by his choice. The READS! staff was o not trained or able to buy supplies for our students for nearly half the program. His entire after-school staff, and most after school staff at the CFYMCA, was not only understaffed for very long periods of time, but the staff was often bitter and unmotivated.
Overall, it was sad. I have no idea what they do it all for. The pay can't be it. I did, however, painstakingly (and I was the only person who made it from beginning to end of our program) influence a lot of local people and students. The YMCA of Central Florida never cared about our program, but myself and my staff worked really well and I'm very proud of what was done.
