Better yourself by bettering others.

Imagine going to work knowing that what you do each day positively affects the lives of the people in your community. You see, working at the Y is more than a job— it’s an opportunity for you to better yourself, while bettering others. The YMCA is one of the largest nonprofits in the U.S., driven by our cause of strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

We were founded as the Young Men’s Christian Association in 1884. But today, we are simply known as The Y—an association that values, and is made stronger by, its diversity and passion. As such, we are deeply committed to equal opportunity employment regardless of gender, age, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation or religious affiliation.

The YMCA of Greater Birmingham frequently has many job opportunities including seasonal, part-time, and full-time employment in: Administrative/Clerical -Child Care, Early Education, Day Camp, Health & Wellness, Management/Director, Recreation/Sports/Aquatics/Tennis, Sleepaway Camp and more.


YMCA Summer Fun Club day camp, Camp Cosby sleepaway camp and Aquatics leaders from the YMCA of Greater Birmingham will answer questions and give insight into Camp Counselor and Aquatics positions at the Y and share more about openings at our many locations!

This is YOUR time to learn more about a day in the life of a YMCA Camp Counselor or Lifeguard. After the group presentation there will be breakout sessions for you to ask questions about the openings across Birmingham and YMCA Camp Cosby in Alpine, Alabama.

We have a lot of Summer positions available – come build your resume at The Y. We hope you’ll join us! Forward this email to anyone you know who would love to work with the Y.
