Why work at the YMCA?

Imagine being a part of one of the most respected human services organizations in the world – a place where your work positively influences the lives of others, a place where you thrive in a values-based environment, a place where you are building a better future for yourself and your community.

At the Piscataquis Regional YMCA, we focus on Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility. We have been working for over 25 years to help our members and friends reach their health and wellness goals. We work with many other organizations to help make our community a better place to live and grow. That’s why we’re continually looking for talented, enthusiastic people with a passion for helping others and the desire to make a difference.

Below are some of positions that we are often looking to fill. When an opening comes up, we look at applications that are already on file. Applications can be picked up at the YMCA Welcome Center or you can also download a copy of our employment application. Please complete it and drop it off in person at the Welcome Center.
