In partnership with Washington Sports Clubs, CentroNía offers discounted gym memberships with one location only a few blocks from headquarters. CentroNía’s Food and Wellness Department also provides opportunities for staff to engage in wellness activities, from the annual “Love Yourself Day” celebration, to physical activity activities during the work day, to providing access to healthy, nutritious meals made in-house every day.

GIVE BACK: Working for a nonprofit means that the work you’re doing every day, whether in a classroom or an office, makes a difference in the lives of low-income, working families and their children. As an employee, you will be part of this learning community and we encourage all staff to volunteer in classrooms, for events, and in support of each other to ensure we’re doing our best to serve the community.
