Equal Employment & Affirmative Action Policy Statement
It is the policy of the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis to provide equal employment opportunity to employees and candidates for employment. Accordingly, there shall be no discrimination against any employee or candidate for employment due to race, color, religious creed, sex, national origin, age, citizenship, disability or against disabled veterans and veterans of the Vietnam era. This policy is applicable to the policies governing recruitment, hiring and placement, promotion, training, compensation, employment environment, and separation or termination.
Compliance with this policy is the personal responsibility of all personnel, especially those whose duties are related to the hiring of new employees and the status or tenure of current employees. Further, as an Equal Opportunity Employer, the company will cooperate fully in the implementation of applicable laws and executive orders.
To ensure compliance with YMCA of Greater Indianapolis policy, the Vice President of Leadership Development and Human Resources has been designated the Equal Employment Opportunity Administrator.
Our purpose is to practice inclusion by valuing the diversity of all people within our association and the communities we serve. We do so by helping our YMCA increase and support the cultural competence of staff, members, volunteers, and the various publics we serve. Diversity is the mosaic of people who bring a variety of backgrounds, styles, perspectives, beliefs and competencies as assets to the YMCA.
The YMCA of Greater Indianapolis offers a diverse range of internship opportunities. The goal of our internship program is to provide:
- A bridging experience for students, connecting their course work to professional experience.
- A short-term work or service opportunity for students, conducted in a real-life employment setting under the supervision of practicing professionals.
- An experience with clearly stated goals and objectives that includes a final project demonstrating the learning accomplished in the intern’s academic discipline.
- An opportunity that may be called by other names, such as practicum, co-op, externship or apprenticeship.
What makes the YMCA such a special place? Ask around, and you’ll likely hear lots of different answers. But you’ll also hear one common thread in all of them: Our people. By volunteering at the Y, you have the opportunity to join this amazing family of passionate, engaged citizens. Combined with making a real difference in your city, that’s an experience whose value just can’t be measured. We’re always looking for motivated people seeking to improve the lives of those around them.
