Youth Development

About Our Staff

All child care staff at the YMCA of Greater San Antonio are CPR, First Aid and Blood Borne Pathogen certified.  All staff are processed for fingerprinting, two background checks and need to submit to a pre-employment drug screening.  After being hired, staff are subject to an annual background check and random drug screenings.  Additionally, staff receive ongoing child development training throughout the year.  All YMCA directors must meet TDFPS licensing standards and follow all rules and regulations in order to maintain their directors license.

All staff must be at least 18 years of age and provide proof of a high school diploma or GED.  The YMCA only hires high school students that are actively enrolled in their school's work study program.  Once a high school student has graduated and is under the age of 18, the YMCA may employ them if the student successfully completed their work study program with the YMCA.
