“Seattle Parks and Recreation is a great place to work! Our summer programs have a significant impact on our communities and the lives of young people. It is critical that we fill our vacancies so that we do not have to close down programs and activities that the fellowship relies on. I encourage anyone interested in a summer job to attend one of our job fairs and apply today,” said Christopher Williams, Acting Seattle Parks and Recreation Superintendent.

“Working at the Y is a life-changing experience and more than just a job,” said Sara Biancofiori, the YMCA’s AVP/District Chair who oversees the water sports. “Spend your summer helping kids learn to swim, supporting families with outdoor learning, and more while growing your leadership, helping the community, and having your best summer ever!”
