The YMCA achieves its mission one person at a time. The greatest source of energy for the YMCA is our staff. Our staff contributes to the advancement of the YMCA’s vision by meeting the needs of the people in our communities. Guided daily by the core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility, our staff create an environment where everyone aspires to be their best.

The Naperville YMCAs is where you can find meaningful work that offers rich rewards. It is where you can simultaneously build a better future for yourself and for kids; families and the Naperville community. YMCAs get the job done through staff members who are carefully selected for their interests, skills and enthusiasm. With over 150 years of experience, YMCAs know that the mission is achieved one person at a time—carried out in the hearts and hands of each caring and competent staff member.

The Naperville YMCA is proud to be an organization which provides training and leadership opportunities for young adults who are part of our staff teams. Over a quarter of our staff teams are comprised of teens/young adults dedicated to making a difference in the lives of those we work with each day. Through their experiences as employees, not only are they contributing to the mission of the YMCA and making a positive impact on our community, but they are also enhancing their personal development. They are developing their decision making skills, and interpersonal and life management skills.

Now is a great time to join the YMCA team. Whether you are pursuing a career in elementary or early childhood education, child development, physical education or recreation, you’ll have hands-on experiences with one of the most respected programs in the western suburbs providing school-aged child care, youth instruction, healthy living and academic enrichment.
