"I've worked for El Camino YMCA since 2012. We really are the best kept secret in town. We are so much more than a gym and a swim. Every year we work with our members, community and other partners to provide resources and opportunities for everyone to strive in. We give everyone the opportunity to participate and be a part of our organization even if they cannot pay. We don't turn anyone away for their inability to pay. I take pride in my work because I know I'm making a difference."

"I worked with YMCA for about a year or so. Working there I built some great relationships with the staff as well as the guests who came in to work out on a regular basis. The chemistry in the office was great, the staff were very helpful. My supervisor was a great leader and mentor on the job. Even on his days off he checked in to make sure everything was running smoothly and to answer any questions I may have had. I would recommend this position to college students looking for a job that isn't too demanding while in school."

"Working at the YMCA was a fun and rewarding environment to be a part of. YMCA has a great company statement with a focus on safety, health, social growth and academic enhancement. While also engaging with the arts, science, math and technology, programs often underfunded in public schools, made my stay with the YMCA an enjoyable one"

"Very keen on outdoor activities. Value youth over experience, in a fast paced setting. Ample marine life observation capabilities, but focuses more on water sports than marine life. Beautiful setting, located on 280 acres of wooded land in remote area of Washington State."

"I have worked for the Anaheim Family YMCA for a total of two years between 2016 and 2020. I have gained knowledge in working with at-risk youth and vulnerable families. Working here has been a great experience because the directors and supervisors here want their staff to learn as much as possible and be successful role models for the youth we serve."
