Small agency, family like atmosphere with co-workers
Case Manager (Former Employee), Cherry Hill, New JerseyJuly 23, 2014
Pros: close connection with co-workers
Cons: dependent on grant monies and the stipulations of the grant. (red tape)
A typical day at work is fast paced, at times hectic.
One wears many hats in the non-profit world of BBBS.

In one word I learned versatility, growing in areas of my personnel life as well as my work environment. Meeting the challenges of the day, while looking forward to what was going to occur next.

My co-workers, an amazing, intelligent group of – more... people to work along side of, and learn from. All whom were multi-talented.

School-aged volunteer opportunity
camp counselor, lifeguarding, and volunteering (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PAJune 20, 2014
I participated in Big Brother Big Sister in North Philadelphia for one full school term. I found that being a positive outlet for children can be very rewarding. Working with inner city children can be challenging at times, but the overall is experience is something I will treasure.

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
