The team at the new Kent YMCA is growing! As the facility gets close to completion, we're building a great staff to run the full suite of services for the greater Kent community. Join branch executive Kelly Guy on a construction tour that was recorded in June 2019 for a closer look inside the new Y. Lots of progress has been made since then:


Work With Us

The new Kent Y location brings a host of new jobs and volunteer opportunities to the East Hill community. Looking for work and want to skip the long commute? You should apply!

More than 100 people will be needed to run the new Kent Y. We're looking for life guards, swimming and fitness instructors, child care workers, teachers and counselors, customer service, membership staff, and more. Whether you're new to the workforce or well-seasoned, we may have just the right position for you.

Part-time and full-time staff enjoy on-the-job training and free YMCA memberships, along with discounted services, and lots of other great benefits.

New positions will be posted on our jobs site leading up to and beyond our grand opening on September 14, 2019. View Kent Y Jobs
