I have been working at YMCA as an intern

Pros

good experience with non-profit organization; very stable and no travel required; the work is to help kids and women, so I feel I can work and give back to the community at the same time.

Cons

So far, I haven't find any cons for working in YMCA. If I have to say something, may be the work is very steady, so if you are looking for new challenges every day, definitely not meet what you expected.

    I worked at YMCA part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    At the YMCA you will be working with great people, and have access to some amazing facilities, not to mention making a positive impact on your community.

    Cons

    The administration is usually bureaucratic and counter-productive. They tend to make executive decisions that negatively affect the children and programs they are supposed to be helping. I can't tell you how many times I had to fight upper management to give the kids a fair shot in the sports programs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being penny pinchers! Everything is not about a dollar sign. Sometimes giving a child a positive experience in his or her life is worth taking a financial hit. Make sure that administrative policies don't negatively affect youth programs.
