Who are we?
At the Seattle Y, we are an inclusive organization of men, women and children with a shared commitment to nurture the potential of youth, promote healthy living, and foster social responsibility.
At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. We work side-by-side with our neighbors throughout King and south Snohomish counties to help kids and families thrive and apply their positive behaviors and goals at home, school, the workplace, and beyond.
Where you’ll work…
You’ll be based out of one of our 13 branches that offers programs ranging from health and wellness, to family programs, to child care, to aquatics (access is a staff benefit - swim a few laps before work, take a yoga class, do some laps on the track before you go home if you like!). The majority of programs are located in Seattle Public Schools buildings. Programs use classrooms, child care rooms, gyms and outdoor spaces.
Fairmount Park Elementary School is an afterschool only program. The Y runs from 1:45pm - 6:00pm and 12:30pm - 6:00pm on Wednesdays. We also offer all day programming on non-school days and summer camps in the Summer. We are a large program with 90 kids in our afterschool program. We are looking for leaders who can help mentor staff and lead a goup of up to 30 children with the support of staff and the site supervisor.
The Seattle Y offers a competitive pay range and part time or full time benefit packages, as eligible.
