Diversity is a mission at the YMCA!



The YMCA of Greater San Antonio recognizes the importance of ensuring that our workforce reflects the diversity of our community.  Diversity and inclusion is an important part of our mission-based programs and services.




Committed to our Community

On February 22, 1876 a group of 31 men met to organize the first YMCA in San Antonio, TX.  Their legacy of hard work and dedication to community continued as the YMCA of Greater San Antonio flourished from the first building erected in 1907 at North Alamo and Third Street.

Today, the YMCA of Greater San Antonio serves children, teens and families of all faiths, incomes, ages and abilities.  YMCA membership brings young and old, men and women and people of all faiths, backgrounds, abilities, ethnicities and income levels together.






Employment Policies

Equal Employment Opportunity Statement (EEO)

Equal Employment Opportunity has been, and will continue to be, a fundamental principle at the YMCA of Greater San Antonio, where employment is based upon personal capabilities and qualifications without discrimination because of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, or any other protected characteristic as established by law.

This policy of Equal Employment Opportunity applies to all policies and procedures relating to recruitment and hiring, compensation, benefits, termination and all other terms and conditions of employment.

The Human Resources Department has overall responsibility for this policy and maintains reporting and monitoring procedures.  Questions or concerns should be referred to the Vice President of Human Resources.

Appropriate disciplinary action will be taken against any employee willfully violating this policy, up to and including termination of employment.

The YMCA of Greater San Antonio is committed to thoroughly investigating all instances of alleged discrimination, including sexual and other forms of harassment.  The Human Resources staff will continually monitor, identify, and correct any practices that are adverse to the intent of the EEO policy.



Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy

The YMCA of Greater San Antonio is committed to providing a work environment that is pleasant, healthful, comfortable, and free from intimidation, hostility or other offenses, which may interfere with work performance. Harassment of any kind, including verbal, physical, and/or visual, will not be tolerated. The YMCA of Greater San Antonio expects a workplace free of all forms of harassment and will not tolerate any abusive conduct or treatment.  

While all forms of harassment are prohibited, it is important to emphasize that sexual harassment, of or by employees, members, program participants, or vendors is unacceptable and illegal behavior; that there is a mechanism for promptly investigating and addressing complaints of sexual harassment; and that anyone experiencing sexual harassment is encouraged to register a complaint with Human Resources.

Sexually harassing conduct may include, but is not limited to:
•    Unwelcome sexual advances;
•    Requests for sexual favors; and/or
•    Any other verbal or physical contact of a sexual nature that prevents an individual from effectively performing the duties of their position and creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive working environment, or when such conduct is made a condition of employment or compensation, either implicitly or explicitly.

 

All YMCA employees have a responsibility to keep the work environment free of harassment. Any employee who is made aware of a possible sexual harassment or discrimination claim must report it to Human Resources, their immediate supervisor, or any supervising representative with whom they feel comfortable.   

The YMCA of Greater San Antonio promotes a hassle-free mode for employees to report sexual harassment claims.  As such, no adverse employment action will be taken for any employee making a good faith report of alleged harassment. Human Resources will conduct a confidential and prompt investigation of sexual harassment and/or discrimination allegations.  Employees who do not meet the expectations of this policy are subject to appropriate disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment.
