Thursday, September 10, 2020

Overwhelmingly, people who decide they want to be a part of the Y in Central Maryland tell us they do so because it reflects their values and a conscious decision they’ve made about how they choose to live their lives. The happiest and most fulfilled Y associates are those who are motivated to help others and who want to be a part of something larger than themselves.
If this speaks to your heart, then we invite you to join our team. Be a part of a charitable, mission-driven organization that works for individual and community well-being for all, for a better us.

How this role contributes to the Y’s mission:

As a Youth Specialist for a Y Academic Support Center, you will participate in facilitating activities for school-aged children that foster overall character building. You will assist in keeping the health and welfare of all children in mind at all times. You will be working directly with youth and assisting children with their virtual learning platforms, helping children to stay on task and follow their prescribed school schedules. You will also facilitate breaks throughout the day and structured programming outside of virtual learning hours. As a Youth Specialist, you’ll contribute to the Y movement by providing enrichment activities to youth and peace of mind to their parents and guardians by knowing their children are safe while they are at work.


This work is right for you if you have:

  • An interest in the well-being of school age children, enthusiasm, patience, good humor, good judgment and a good spirit
  • The ability to clearly communicate and effectively listen to children parents/guardians, members, school administration and other Y associates
  • The ability to empathize with children in a virtual learning environment
  • The ability to help and troubleshoot technology with children
  • The ability to be flexible and work at multiple locations
  • The ability to work between the hours of 7am – 6pm
  • The ability to work up to 32 hours or an 8 hour shift

Thank you for considering working for the Y in Central Maryland. If being a part of our cause feels right for you, we hope you will join us.  The Y provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment.
