Employment Opportunities

Looking for a job with purpose and meaning, a place were family values and a fun environment take center stage? A place where you can make a difference in the lives of those in your community? Consider a job with the Greater Joliet Area YMCA. Are values like caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility important to you? Then the Greater Joliet Area YMCA is a great place for you to work.


Whether it’s your first job, or you are a seasoned professional, being part of an organization with a deep, widespread mission will give you a sense of accomplishment as you work toward our common goal of building strong kids, strong families and strong communities.


The Greater Joliet Area YMCA works hard to ensure that the children and members in its programs and branches are protected. All employees must complete an Employment Application. A clean background check and approved volunteer application are required before anyone is allowed to work for the YMCA. The YMCA assumes all costs involved in the background check.


Unless otherwise noted below, all positions are for part time hours. All staff receive a YMCA membership. Those wanting to upgrade to a family membership may do so at a lower rate.
