Careers

At the Y, you’re not just a member of a facility; you’re part of a cause.

Social Responsibility

We know that when we work as one, we move people and communities forward. That’s why we are committed to providing support to our neighbors and opportunities for kids, adults and families to give, join in or advocate in the name of stronger communities.

Social Services

To bring about meaningful change, individuals need ongoing encouragement and tools. We’re here day-in and day-out to provide the resources our community needs to address the most pressing social issues: societal re-entry, childhood hunger, summer learning loss, chronic disease prevention and more. We work to make sure every child, family and community has what they need to achieve their best.

Global Services

At the Y, building a strong global community begins at home. Ys in the U.S. help young people develop cultural competencies, diverse populations connect to the community and individuals around the world gain access to life-changing resources and support. As an interconnected global network, the Y has the resources and solutions to build bridges and make our changing communities stronger—both at home and abroad.

Volunteerism & Giving

The generosity of others is at the core of our existence. It is only through the support of our hundreds of  volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to give back to the Erie community.

Advocacy

We are a powerful ally and advocate for our communities. Our experience and strong relationships in 10,000 neighborhoods across the nation mean that we are able to organize grassroots efforts and influence public policy around a range of social issues including child welfare, education and public health.
