A typical AWANA meeting night
Leader / Secretary (Former Employee), Nettleton Baptist ChurchJuly 6, 2012
Pros: children learning about jesus!
Cons: the noise.
AWANA is not a company it is a club for children at our Church. We had approximately 160-200 children attend weekly on Wednesday evenings. I taught Second grade for two years and was a secretary for one year. The age range for AWANA is 2 yrs to 6th grade. Children are like sponges, the can soak up the Word of God and apply it in ways we never dreamed. – more... The have a game time, hand book time, mission time and snack time. They truly enjoy this. Most children memorize at least 6 scripture verses each night! They earn awards and have special challenges and have contests...it is great fun! Seeing the kids run in the door to check in, so they can say the verses they have learned is so enjoyable. The hardest part would be the fatigue and the noise that many children can produce...but it's a good tired. We all feel that way (the other workers). My husband kept working at it for many years, then began working with older children as our son aged, I again began Youth work. – less

A great place to do volunteer work that gives back in heart touching moments
Leader (Former Employee), Vacaville, CAJune 4, 2012
Pros: job satisfaction
Although it may have been volunteer work, I always thought of the kids as my own. Sure they could be a bit rowdy at times, but seeing the cute smiles on their faces and the knowledge that these children were actually learning from me made it all worth it. Everyone was nice and polite and willing to help co-workers and parents find what they need.

Teaching
Leader (Current Employee), Beechboro,WAFebruary 10, 2014
Pros: able to teach children of various ages
Cons: insuffcient staff.
I enjoy doing volunteer work there as I get to meet many children and teenagers from various countries and cultures. I have learned to organize my work to suit the different needs of the young people I teach. The hardest part of the job is when the children do not speak English and I had problems communicating with them. Nevertheless, through the games – more... and activities in the program, I am able to lead and provide help to the young people which I feel very rewarding. – less
