Youth mentoring volunteer (Current Employee), cin, ohOctober 8, 2014
I learned not only an extraordinary amount about children in need but also myself. With this organization I realized my adoration of nonprofit organizations and what they mean to people in need. This human resource is excellent in aiding children of harsh backgrounds and mentoring them to rise higher than the building trend.

Okay place to work
Internship (Former Employee), Baltimore, MDSeptember 18, 2014
Pros: gained office experience
I come in to work and go to my manager to see what I had to work on for the day. I would work on what I was told to work on until my lunch break. I took my 30 minute lunch break. I worked on my work until it was time for me to get off work. I would show my manager the work that I had done. Then I would go home. I learned how to type documents fast. – more... I learned how to research funding sources. My manager and co-workers was so nice to me. There was not a hard part of this job. The most enjoyable part of this job is watching television while eating your lunch. – less

Wonderful cause & friendly staff
Events (Current Employee), TexasAugust 11, 2014
Pros: flexible, "feel good" feelings, fun and social office
Cons: managers are on their own time, no room for raises, high turnover, office gossip
Big Brothers Big Sisters is very flexible with time and it's expectations. I learned a lot about the at-risk children in the Texas area and the desperate need for mentors. The cause spoke for it's self, and has a very motivating mission... "Do it for the kids!" Co-workers were somewhat policitcal, typical office space, little drama. Hardest part about – more... my job was the amount of "no's" that were recieved- not everyone loves the mission as much as the BBBS employees. I loved serving the children and seeing the smiles on their faces was completely worth it! – less

Recruiter (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHAugust 9, 2014
Pros: the joy that it gave me to serve the community.
Cons: not enough people saw the value
A typical days work consisted of identifying potential new mentors for the children that we serviced. In addition to identifying companies that we could solicited their participation in the program. As well as setting various recruitment events. The management was great to work for very personable and goal oriented. The entire staff worked together – more... to accomplish the companies goals. The most challenging part of the job was obtaining mentors for the extremely long waiting list of children that we had. Most enjoyable part was the opportunity to get men and women signed up to become mentors and the excitement to make a match. – less
