YMCA EMPLOYMENT

LEARN, GROW, THRIVE AT THE Y.

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.

As the largest not-for-profit community service organization in America, the YMCA is that place. Our goal is to provide affordable programs and services focused on the holistic development of children and youth, family strengthening and the health and well-being for all. That’s a tall order, especially given that there are more than 2,600 YMCAs across the U.S. serving 20 million people each year. But it's why we're continually looking for talented, enthusiastic people with a passion for helping others and the desire to make a difference.

MOUNT DESERT ISLAND INFORMATION

The Mount Desert Island YMCA is located in downtown Bar Harbor, Maine, in the shadow of Acadia National Park. Bar Harbor and the Mount Desert Island community welcomes over 3 million visitors during the summer months of June-August and boasts a small, but vibrant year-round community.

For those who love the outdoors, Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park boasts 24 mountain peaks and 125 miles of pristine hiking trails. Hikes and climbs range from easy and family-friendly to difficult and best left to experienced climbers. Various ocean adventures are available for all from whale watches and nature tours  to sea-kayaking and paddle-boarding. In the summer, with over 3 million visitors arriving, MDI comes alive with people, restaurants, and community activities.

In the winter, when the visitors are gone and it's just the year-round residents, the pace of the island slows down. Community events through the Criterion Theater, local churches and charities, and the island libraries are favorites for all. The Jesup Library of Bar Harbor has hosted speakers like former Senator George Mitchell and host a wide range of activities such as: Girls Who Code Club, Contra Dancing, Lego Club, and much more!

The Mount Desert Island Regional School System (MDIRSS-AOS #91) has eight elementary/middle schools and one high school. Conners-Emerson School of Bar Harbor, was named a National Blue Ribbon School in 2017.
