Branch Executive Director

Westchester Family YMCA

“Mayberry” in the heart of the hustle and bustle of West Los Angeles, is often how Westchester is described by its residents and neighbors. Located a mile from Los Angeles International Airport and two miles from the southland beaches, this diverse community is constantly improving itself. What a great place for you to take your Y career to the next level as the Branch Executive Director of the Westchester Family YMCA.

The Executive Director oversees a full time staff of 16 (8 of whom are at director level or higher), 114 part time employees, and 6 seasonal.

Our Y is more than 50 years old, and some of the pioneers that built it are still on our Board of Managers, making sure we stay strong, and are always moving forward.

Westchester has a thriving and growing downtown area overseen by the Westchester Town Center Business Improvement District. New restaurants and night life are popping up all the time with many cultural events and spectator sports. Loyola Marymount University is planted right in the middle of town. LMU works as a partner with our Y and neighborhood schools to help us make sure we are always working to be the best we can be. Our Executive Director should have that same spirit and drive to be the best they can be.

Our Y is one of the larger and more successful branches in the YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles. With a membership of nearly 3,000 families, our facility is busy from early morning to late at night with many different programs for kids, adults, and seniors. We have a premiere Youth & Government delegation, a growing Model UN program, a very popular Adventure Guide program, lots of sport and enrichment programs for kids and teens, and partnerships with our community senior outreach programs, and our local public schools. Our Executive Director needs to be successful at networking with the community as it is today, as it grows into tomorrow, and to be able to seek out and develop new channels of financial support.

Our facilities are solid, and well used. However, our building is older, and the board and membership look forward to one day rebuilding it for the generations to come. Our Executive Director needs to be able to foster a vision of the future, and help us prepare for a capital campaign to bring that vision to life. He or she will have a very helpful board of managers, and a very strong and dedicated community to help in this long range plan. That said, prior experience in major fundraising is a must, and a leadership role in a successful capital campaign is desirable.

Our service area includes Westchester, Playa Del Rey, Marina Del Rey, Inglewood, Jefferson, Lennox, Hawthorn and El Segundo. Our Branch Executive Director will oversee a vast area of small businesses, as well as both primary and secondary corporate headquarters, and a rapidly growing technology center. Relationships need to be established in conjunction with our Director of Development for financial support and partnership to keep our branch strong, and to provide service to the community.

The combination of a strong and committed membership, board of managers, and community is a trifecta for the right individual to lead and grow with us. Being able to work in a community like Westchester is the icing on the cake.
