Productive office with interactive outside work
Intern (Former Employee), State College, PAMarch 17, 2014
Half of my day is spent in the office making phone calls, checking e-mails and sending/writing letters. I have learned many useful office type skills including how to use the directory system and the copier/scanner/printer and how the postage marker. The other half of my day is spent at elementary or middle after school programs. There I get to hang – more... out with the kids and be a one-on-one mentor. It is really great to be able to work with these kids and watch them grow week by week. I also spend time with first time, non-violent offenders on juvenile probation. I take them to and from activities and hang out with them and try to be a role model. My favorite part of the job is being able to work with all the kids. – less

I would have worked for BBSID for free I didn't the income.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), IDOctober 12, 2013
Pros: hours were flexible-m-f, and working in a pleasant environment
Cons: the pay was okay, would have love to see a raise within the 3 years i was there
Working with the management, Board of Directors, Case Managers, and the big sisters and big brothers was very rewarding; BBSID does so much for the children of the community that at times it is an over whelming experience. I loved my job there and would recommend others to experience it as well.
