The Y Retirement Fund
One of the primary benefits of working for a YMCA is that you will be enrolled in the Retirement Plan, the pension program for almost all YMCAs in the United States. In the course of your YMCA career, if you move from one YMCA to another, your retirement savings move with you because they are always at the YMCA Retirement Fund. Over time, contributions, combined with the interest earned, can help you build a nest egg for the future and plan for a comfortable retirement.
Apply your experience, knowledge, creativity and energy to discover new talents within yourself as you make a difference in the community around you. The YMCA fosters an environment built upon teamwork, staff development and community. The YMCA provides a fun, safe and caring environment where you can build your career. Reach your greatest potential with the YMCA.
