Looking for a fun, flexible, AND rewarding job?

Idaho’s newest Aquatic Center, located at the Tomlinson South Meridian YMCA is opening soon and we’re currently accepting applications for Swim Instructors, Lifeguards, and Water Fitness Instructors. Applicants at all skill levels are encouraged to apply, and training and support is available for all applicants interested in beginning their aquatic career at the Y!

SWIM INSTRUCTORS do so much more than teach swim lessons – they inspire confidence in others of all ages. One of the most effective ways to instill confidence in people and create a healthier community is to teach youth, teens, and adults to swim, so they can stay safe around water and learn the skills they need to make swimming a lifelong pursuit for staying healthy. 

LIFEGUARDS make a difference in our facilities every day by ensuring the safety of participants and the community. As a lifeguard, you will have the opportunity to develop your leadership skills, be a part of an amazing team, learn a critical skill, and be a role model to participants. 

WATER FITNESS INSTRUCTORS get to lead participants through classes designed to build muscle, improve range of motion and flexibility, and increase stamina, all while building a supportive community with their class participants.

Why work for the Y?

Working at the Y, you have the opportunity to strengthen communities and change lives, including your own. No matter what role you take on at the Y, you’ll show up each day with the satisfaction of knowing your contributions are helping to empower young people, improve health and well-being, and inspire action in your community. Working side by side with diverse leaders with different backgrounds, perspectives, and strengths, you’ll discover new ways to connect with your community, find your purpose, and fuel your passion every day! Learn more about YMCA Employment here.
