Founded in 1852, today the Y serves a diverse population of more than half a million New Yorkers who learn, grow, and thrive through programs and services at our 24 branches. Community is the cornerstone of the Y. Together, we connect active, engaged New Yorkers to build stronger communities.

The YMCA of Greater New York is seeking qualified individuals who will work with the Public Affairs team, a YMCA branch, and external partners to build awareness and mobilize census response efforts.

  • Identify and cultivate relationships with community and government partners.
  • Engage in extensive community outreach, both through formal partners such as houses of worship and informal spaces such as barber shops.
  • Coordinate the implementation of census plan at a particular YMCA branch, including distributing educational materials, helping organize community forums, and organizing volunteers for pop-up census centers.
  • Track and compile data from neighborhood efforts.
  • Other duties as assigned.
  • Adhere to all Department of Health, YMCA of Greater New York, and funder standards, expectations, and regulations.
  • Actively participate in all training sessions and designated meetings.

Desired Skills & Experience:

  • High School diploma or equivalent.

We offer an exciting and innovative work environment with an organizational culture committed to serving all members of our community.

Our expectation is that all staff promotes participation of their branch fundraising efforts in some capacity.
