We want you to grow with us!

We are looking for the perfect candidate for a "groundbreaking" opportunity here in the YMCA of Greater Charlotte! For the first time, we will be operating our Afterschool program in one of our local school systems, the Lincoln County Schools, along with a program at our local YMCA facility. This is an exciting development for our association and we are looking for the ideal candidate to lead the charge as we expand our impact in this wonderful community!


What the before and after school program is about:

Our before and afterschool staff are supported by an innovated curriculum and receive ongoing professional development. Children are never alone; we have at least two staff per site with a ten to one ratio. We know that learning doesn't end when the school bell rings. The way a child spends time after school can make a big difference in their personal development and the family-life balance. With the YMCA Afterschool program, kids engage in a variety of exciting physical and imaginative activities that encourage them to explore who they are and what they can achieve. Through guided play children learn to respect themselves and others, work out their differences and discover the value of friendship. Academic support from caring role models enriches children's educational experience and enables families to spend more quality time together. Our goal is to provide quality programming while instilling core values that help children grow physically, mentally, socially to their potential. The program will currently include the following locations:

Lincoln County Family YMCA * Childers Elementary * Iron Station Elementary *Pumpkin Center Primary * Rock Springs Elementary * St. James Elementary

More sites may be added as the program grows.

Here are just some of the benefits of working for the YMCA of Greater Charlotte:

  • The YMCA is an exciting and fun place to work; a workplace culture of talented and motivated individuals.
  • We recognize and value the need to have both; a rewarding career and a healthy work/life balance and we encourage it.
  • Health & Wellness is at the center of our mission and we promote this in our branches each and every day.
  • We are a Family-Friendly Workplace.
  • We offer health & dental benefits as well as a retirement savings plan.
