    I worked at YMCA part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with children is extremely rewarding and presents unique experiences and challenges every day. They do a great job of hiring young, energetic counselors who are fun people to work with. Great summer job for high school or college students

    Cons

    The YMCA does not have the funding that many other organizations have for summer camp due to their dedication to including children from all types of backgrounds. The counselor to camper ratio is often at the legal maximum which can be stressful to manage especially when that includes children with disabilities.


  2. "Prepare for Long Days and Long Weeks"

    I have been working at YMCA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to make a change in people's lives. Giving back to the community.

    Cons

    Days can be long. Upper management often doesn't acknowledge when their support staff is doing a good job. Pay is so-so. Tenure staff is often overlooked for advancement. Communication among departments needs to improve.

    Advice to Management

    Make an investment in training the staff you have on board. This will make staff want to stay longer and make a difference in the lives of families
