DIVERSE WORK ENVIRONMENT
Silver Bay YMCA of the Adirondacks is a coveted summer work experience for people all around the United States and the world (more than 12 countries may be represented)! You’ll gain a broader understanding of people from different backgrounds and worldviews
UNIQUE OUTREACH OPPORTUNITIES
You'll have lots time to build strong relationships as you work, eat, and live with many of the same people throughout the summer. The natural setting of the program provides many chances to get away and experience God's creation with other people. The relationships and setting lead to many unique opportunities for talking about spiritual subjects.
All Adirondack LT participants must be employed by the Silver Bay YMCA. Acceptance into the Adirondack LT program does not guarantee employment at the Silver Bay YMCA. Check the "Employment at the YMCA" page for more details on how to apply for a job at the YMCA.
Transportation to Adirondack LT is up to the participant. Most of the campuses participating will help with arranging carpools to the program. Participants are welcome to arrange their own transportation. While having access to your own vehicle at Adirondack LT is a plus, it is not necessary. With your housing, jobs, and program activities all happening at the YMCA, it is easy to go the summer without a car.
Because everyone attending the Adirondack Leadership Training Program is required to work for the YMCA, all participants will be living in housing supplied by the YMCA. These facilities are generally dorm-like units, housing multiple people per room.
Adirondack LT participants are expected to be a good testimony for Christ all summer on the job, in our housing, during free time and at program events. Full participation in all LT events is required.
