This week, the YMCA of Metro Atlanta announced that it is currently looking to hire part-time employees to fill around 900 positions for the summer months.

The local nonprofit says that the newly-announced job opportunities are available at the 19 YMCA locations across Metro Atlanta and are open to residents that are 16 years of age or older.

Among the part-time summer positions the Y is looking to fill include lifeguards, swim instructors, day camp counselors, day camp site directors and more.

“Working at the Y is ideal for all ages and experience levels, especially for those wanting to make a positive impact on the community,” said Lauren Koontz, president and CEO of the YMCA of Metro Atlanta.

In addition, as an extra incentive, the YMCA says that newly hired part-timers who put in at least 160 hours of work between June 5 and Aug. 5 will receive a $300 summer bonus.

“When you work at the Y, you join an organization that understands the power of connection and belonging,” said Koontz. “If you want a fun summer job that provides an opportunity to build a professional foundation and make lifelong friends, we encourage you to join our team.”
