Take care of your own. Great people are either forced out the door due to management not giving recognition to obvious issues. Or they leave because it's hard to live making scraps. It starts at the top. Just like many corporations with I'll advised leaders, sadly the Y is no different

Don’t give your blood sweat and tears for this place. It’s been embraced by the other big corporate cogs and is slowly going downhill. You will bring programs out of the dumps, and they’ll just misappropriate funds and relocate to another location without any ramifications. I grew up going to the Y as a kid and it should’ve stopped there. The Y doesn’t help communities when it doesn’t even help its own staff. Steer clear of this “non profit “.
