Job Description

As the nation's leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y offers more than just a job, it offers a cause to embrace.

Originally built in 1925 this 112,000 square foot facility recently underwent an extensive renovation and revitalization. Spaces were renovated using modern elements and glass to increase visual transparency within the building while complementing the existing wood and other elements, preserving this rich historic building of the Green Bay community.

Schedule: Full-time (40 hours/week): flexibility required to work days, nights and weekends as needed; includes coverage rotations. 20-25 hours will be focused on the Group Exercise Coordinator role, with the remaining hours personal training.
