Job Description


Who are we?

At the Seattle Y, we are an inclusive organization of people 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.

* 13 branches
* 2 overnight camps
* More than 200 program sites

Where you'll work:

Our office is in the heart of Downtown Seattle, in a historic building that has housed the YMCA since the 1930s. Not only does our building house our Association Office (corporate headquarters), but it's also home to some of our unique social service programs AND a membership facility (access is a staff benefit - swim a few laps before work, take a yoga class at lunch, do some laps on the track before you go home, if you like!). The Seattle Y offers a competitive pay range and excellent benefit package including YMCA membership, health, dental, life and disability insurance; tuition assistance; 12% retirement contribution, as eligible.
