The Adirondack LT program has two distinct applications; one to the Silver Bay YMCA for employment and one to Reliant for participation in the program. Acceptance as an employee of the YMCA is mandatory for participation in the program.
HOW TO APPLY TO THE YMCA
- Apply online for a job at the Silver Bay YMCA at www.silverbay.org/employment
- Follow the directions under "SEASONAL EMPLOYMENT (WITH HOUSING)"
- Also, make sure to apply with Collegiate through Reliant for participation in the Adirondack LT program
EMPLOYMENT AT THE YMCA IS MANDATORY
Acceptance as an employee of the Silver Bay YMCA is mandatory for participation in the Adirondack LT program. It is the sole responsibility of the participant to secure employment for Adirondack LT. It is not a responsibility of Collegiate, Reliant, Reliant's employees, or the Program Directors to secure employment for the participant. LT participants are expected to be good examples of leadership in the work place and employment during the project. Involuntary termination or being fired from employment while at LT could result in the immediate dismissal from the LT program.
EMPLOYMENT IS NOT GUARANTEED
Collegiate and Reliant cannot guarantee anyone a job for the summer. Your participation in the Adirondack LT program requires that you apply for and receive employment for the Silver Bay YMCA. Your hiring is completely up to the YMCA.
HOW EMPLOYMENT AT THE YMCA WORKS
The YMCA of the Adirondacks employs all our participants and houses them in their dorms. Compensationincludes food and housing plus approximately $290 per week in additional wages for 40 hours of work. Everyworker is guaranteed at least 40 hours per week. In addition, there may be opportunities to work overtime at ahigher rate of compensation.
REQUIRED TO WORK FULL TIME
As part of the Adirondack LT program, and as part of your employment agreement with the YMCA, each participant is required to work a full-time job. The reason for this is to provide an environment for meeting and building natural relationships - important for developing the skills you'll be learning this summer. Obviously, most participants will need to earn an income to help pay for LT, school, and personal expenses. Your job at the YMCA also secures and provides your food and housing for the summer.
