You’ll be based out of one off the 13 branches in our welcoming membership facility that offers programs ranging from health and wellness, to family programs, to child care, to aquatics (access is a staff benefit - swim a few laps before work, take a yoga class, do some laps on the track before you go home, if you like!). The majority of programs for this role are in Seattle Public Schools building. Programs use classrooms, child care rooms, gyms and outdoor spaces. We have two dedicated classrooms that we will use for our after school program.
