Work With Youth at the Y

– Work With Youth at the Y

As school districts in our area navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, students and parents are left wondering where to go. The Harrisburg Area YMCA saw a need to fill and created Virtual Learning Spaces. What are Virtual Learning Spaces? They’re a place where students can conduct their virtual learning with the support of YMCA instructors and facilitators. These spaces are a supportive alternative to at-home online learning where essential health and safety guidelines are practiced.

This new programming, in conjunction with existing School Age Child Care, has left many of our branches in need of additional staff. Check out the child care job openings at our branches below! We can’t wait for you to join us.
