We do this through programs that help build a healthy mind, body and spirit for all, and our programs are built around our three focus areas: Healthy Living, Youth Development and Social Responsibility. The Y is committed to access, inclusion and engagement for all. At the Y we recognize, appreciate and value all dimensions of diversity and the ways that our communities are unique. We seek to engage and connect diverse populations in a welcoming environment focused on building bridges towards empathy and equity. As an employer, the Y seeks to recruit energetic professionals, encourage work-life balance, and provide opportunities for growth and development. Our employees exemplify and adhere to our four Brand Behaviors of Honesty, Caring, Respect and Responsibility.
