For nearly 132 years the Armed Services YMCA of Hampton Roads has been strengthening our military families.
As an ever-evolving and growing non-profit organization, and home to the largest concentration of military in the nation, we recognize the challenges associated with the military lifestyle and provide support programs specially designed to meet the unique needs of military families. We offer an array of no-cost and low-cost programs and services. Unlike your neighborhood Y, we do NOT have paid memberships, pools or fitness equipment. We have core programs that focus primarily on child development initiatives to enhance cognitive development and social-emotional growth and connection while providing skills to strengthen resilience. Our impact in the lives of our families is real.

The School-Age Care Counselor will work closely with peers, under the direct supervision of the School-Age Care Director, to implement high-quality child care and summer camp programs that meet the social-emotional needs of students, ages 4-12 years. Facilitators provide a FUN, happy, and safe learning environment that promotes academic growth and personal character development through interactive, engaging activities. This position requires an enthusiastic, caring, child-centered professional with excellent communication and people skills that foster positive interactions with students, staff, families, and the community.
Our Operation Hero Facilitators build a positive rapport with elementary students (grades 2-5), guiding their learning through team-building activities and engaging, hands-on lessons that focus on character development and resilience. In this after-school program, teachers and parents provide information to assist Operation Hero Facilitators in helping students to improve in targeted areas to meet their personal goals. Facilitators will follow curriculum-based lesson plans and activities focusing on 9 key characteristics that assist children in navigating through a military lifestyle.
The Armed Services YMCA provides Before & After Care during the school year, transporting students to and from neighboring schools. Drivers will need to be available 7 AM - 9:30 AM and 2 PM - 4:30 PM, Monday - Friday.
The driver must have a valid driver's license with no recent moving violations or other discrepancies that may inhibit their ability to safely and legally operate our vehicles.

The Armed Services YMCA is always looking for dedicated and committed volunteers. We welcome high school and college students working toward their community service requirements, corporations, clubs, organizations, classes, and active duty service members as part of the Military Volunteer Program.
