A typical work day with the kids isn't always easy, but the YMCA has an awesome support system and fun trainings to help you improve and make your day easier and more enjoyable. It's also a great place to make long lasting friendships and feel like you're really doing something worth while. I fell in love with this job and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys working with kids and enjoys having a family like work community.
I worked with young people. I say that I am over 60 yr. old and out of place. Have no common interest but my co workers did talk to me too much or start a conversation. Just give orders. Some times they take on the responsibility and I just sit there until I go home. You need to be college bound or younger to work there.
