Pros: Working with people, education opportunities
Cons: There is not much room for advancement within the YMCA.
I have been extremely fortunate in my career with the YMCA. I began working with the children. I was given multiple opportunities for advancement.
A typical day is spent interacting with the public, meeting with clients one on one, or within a group. I perform any duties needed that would contribute positively with cleanliness, working as a team, or needs for the facility to run effectively.
