YMCA of San Diego County: Corporate Office

Discover Your Passion!

Join us at the Child and Youth Development Job Fair

The YMCA of San Diego County is hiring! Are you a positive, creative and flexible worker who is passionate about working with children? Come to our Child and Youth Development Job Fair on July 7, starting at 10:00 am!

We will be conducting on-the-spot interviews for multiple positions that vary in responsibility (and qualifications) for before-and-after-school programs located throughout central San Diego during the 2018-2019 school year, starting this fall.

Staff in these positions work directly with children on a variety of subjects and activities, including art, science, music, homework support, academic enrichment, group games, team building and more! This provides an excellent opportunity for staff to further develop critical skills and gather experience that can be very valuable within the child and youth development industry or other fields.

Who Should Apply

These roles are great for Child Development, Early Child Development, Education or Recreation majors, though all are welcome.

If hired, a typical Monday through Friday afternoon schedule would start around 12:00-1:00 pm and continue until 5:00-6:00 pm, according to the school district calendar. Availability throughout those five days (M-F) is ideal - however, we will consider candidates who are only able to work two or more days per week.

Typical morning hours (M-F) start around 6:00 am and continue until around 8:00 am - availability to work these hours are appreciated but are not required.

Date: Saturday, July 7, 2018

Time: 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
