YMCA of Silicon Valley
STRENGTHENING COMMUNITY IS OUR CAUSE
The Y is a powerful association of men, women and children of all ages and from all walks of life joined together by a shared passion: to strengthen the foundations of community.
With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.
Anchored in neighborhoods throughout Silicon Valley, the Y believes that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our community. The Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children, adults, families and communities.
Jobs at the Y are challenging. We ask a lot of our staff because the Y must be a safe place where parents can trust us with their most precious possessions – their children, family, health and welfare. We expect our staff members to be role models for what we want in our community behavior. In addition, we look for the following attributes: grit and determination, the ability to build strong relationships by engaging with people, positivity in words and actions, being able to bring your values into your life and work, and protecting our organization by making good decisions where our staff, members and guests are concerned.
Jobs at the Y are also rewarding. There are tangible benefits like membership, a flexible schedule, training and development for all levels, and one of the most secure and dependable retirement programs in the country. There are also intangible benefits, like surrounding yourself with potential mentors and leaders who are eager to help you succeed. There is also the intangible but very important benefit of knowing that every day working at the Y you will make a difference to people right here in your community.
