Mobile App Wellness Challenges
We’re encouraging you to stay active this summer in the Strong Body, Strong Heart, and Strong Mind app challenges. For June, July, and August, we will offer a monthly focus on strength, heart, and mind/body respectively. This might be the perfect chance to try new equipment or a new class and earn prizes along the way. Bonus! We’ll drop all new on-demand videos bi-weekly that align with these challenges, taught by your very own YMCA instructors, so you stay active even on summer vacation!
Working at the YMCA
Summer isn’t just a great time for members and program participants – employees have a blast, too! While the YMCA is a great place to work year-round, summer always brings plenty of opportunities for seasonal positions. In addition to a job with purpose and building lifelong relationships with colleagues, eligible employees can receive a summer bonus of $500 cash.
