  • At the Y, kids will learn more about their world, develop healthy relationships with adults and other kids, build self-reliance, get help with their schoolwork and more — all in a safe, nurturing environment.
  • Greater Somerset County YMCA’s fully-licensed child care programs provide warm and supportive environments where children learn, grow, and thrive
  • We also offer a wide array of year-round and seasonal youth programming that includes archery, basketball, creative arts, dance, gymnastics, martial arts, music, performing arts, and more

  • Our part-time positions offer flexible schedules which are great for working around a second job, college class schedule, or children’s school schedule…you can also mix-and-match positions for personalized variety in your day – teach contemporary dance one day and be a trusted caregiver in our Early Education Centers the next – it’s all possible at the Y!
  • Our full time positions offer comprehensive benefit packages that include medical and dental insurance along with a 12% employer contribution to the retirement savings plan after two years of employment
