Work At The Y

Work At The Y | The Gateway Family YMCA

We Seek Those That Want To Make A Difference

At the Y, we get the job done through professional staff members who possess — and will model in their work with those we serve — our four core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.

The Y is more than a job; it’s a career! The Y has a wide-reaching system of training and development opportunities. With more than 175 years of experience, the Y knows that its mission is achieved one person at a time — carried out in the hearts and hands of each caring and skillful staff member.

The Gateway Family YMCA provides a fun, learning and safe working environment. We offer health and fitness, aquatics, membership, child care centers, and day camps in Elizabeth, Rahway, and Union. Housing and social services are also offered at our Elizabeth Branch and The Dudley House in Plainfield.  WISE Adult Social Day Services is offered in Union.  Our YMCA provides many opportunities for employment in either a full-time or part-time capacity – year round or seasonal.
