The McBurney YMCA welcomes Jill Fetchko, our new Early Childhood and School Age Child Care Director. Jill is new to the McBurney family but is no stranger to the YMCA! She joins us in her twelfth year of service in the YMCA movement. For 10 years Jill worked for the Fairview Lake YMCA in Northern New Jersey teaching environmental education, planning retreats, and creating programs for teens, adults, youth, and families. Most recently, she worked at the YMCA of Greater New York’s Association Office in the Human Resources Department specializing in training and staff development. In partnership with the Senior Executive for Staff Development, Jill assisted creating and implementing training conferences that focused on the many facets of NYC University; an Association wide training initiative. Jill is a graduate of Montclair State University where she focused on Women’s Studies and Sociology. We are excited to see how Jill’s experience in Youth & Family programming, staff development, and YMCA culture enriches our Youth and Family programs and enhances our community involvement.
