Encouraged diversity, personal growth and a real team environment.
OSCAR leader (Former Employee) – Hamilton City, Waikato – 6 June 2019
While working for the YMCA we were always encouraged to uphold the four YMCA values responsibility, respect, caring and honesty. Even after leaving this job, I continue to carry out these values in my day to day life. By working for the YMCA I learned that it is okay to ask for help and step in when you see someone else struggling. I enjoyed working with a diverse range of people from any different cultures and of many different ages. Not having a set number of guaranteed hours every week was a struggle.
People good, bringing them into the 20th century was a good challenge
