Current Openings

We are an equal-opportunity employer committed to diversity in the workplace.

I grew up going to the local community center in Detroit. AYCC’s tagline “Belong  Believe  Achieve” didn’t exist then, but that was what I experienced growing up in a community center. That’s why I do what I do: so I can help kids to have that feeling of belonging, to help them believe in themselves and know they can achieve anything they set their minds to achieve. –Kenneth Hughes-Davis (Hewey), North End Site Coordinator

Staff Testimonials

I’ve always wanted to work with kids, and I know from experience as a kid who grew up coming here for swimming and the Mid-Maine Dolphins that the AYCC is the perfect place to work with kids. The AYCC has always been a safe space for me, and that’s why I’m here…to provide that safe space for the kids.  – Brenna Saucier, Assistant Aquatics Director


I work at the AYCC because I love athletics and I love working with children. The gym space has become a place where children belong, and where they are inspired to believe in themselves and to reach for the skies. The fact that I can work in a place where I combine my two passions and do so in a safe space to express who I am is special for me.  – Rich Candido, Physical Education Coordinator, After School Program


I’ve had two great careers in the aviation and dental industries. I wanted to keep working, but I wanted to switch gears and try something new. I decided to try housekeeping, and I love it! I could work anywhere doing anything, but I love the AYCC’s people and its mission. I can see myself working here until I retire for the last time.  – Mark Potter, Housekeeping
