Internship (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – January 26, 2014
When the kids first arrive at the center we start helping with homework. After that I would help with additional activities that would help them not only learn but earn points for incentives such as toys and candy for participation in reading, math, and writing.
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – January 31, 2016
A typical day at the boys & girls club consisted of me supervising children with homework and both indoor and outdoor activities. Playing sports, board games and even coaching the younger girls in cheerleading.
This job was a grant position, where the grant only lasted for a one year period. Each day I prepared after school activities for the children. My co-workers were involved with the activities. I truly enjoyed working with the community and the children. The hardest part of my job was finding the funding to keep the facility open.

Program Assistant (Former Employee) – Hilton Head Island, SC – January 12, 2016
This place was a great place to serve. I learned so much because I saw myself in the life of some many of the boys within the club. I would recommend this place for any child that does not have a mother and father in the same house.
Every person is different and that is something i had to learn
fun and exciting workplace that inspires both specialists and children to work together to learn and grow.
Youth Development Specialist (Current Employee) – Riverside, CA – January 5, 2016
My time at the Boys and Girls Club has been one of my favorites. Aiding in the development of my students and watching them grow has been one of the most rewarding experiences. I feel as though my job was not simply to teach, but also to learn. My passion for working with children has always been present, but through this position I have been able to mold this passion into a skill. The skill set I have acquired through this position includes the ability to communicate with parents and teachers, maintain classroom management, create lesson plans, and find creative ways to make learning fun. I truly regard this position as one of the highlights of my career and personal growth.

Junior Staff (Former Employee) – Brighton, CO – December 29, 2015
When I was working at the Boys & Girls Club, I was usually working the front desk. I would check kids in and out of the system (facility) and I would verify the identification of the people who would pick up the members (kids). I would also be supervising the children within the "Game room" of the facility and clean up the facility regularly. Finally, I would take care of any other tasks asked of me by my supervisor. As I worked at the Boys & Girls Club, I learned how to patiently take care of tasks while taking care of and supervising members (kids) at the Boys & Girls Club within a reasonable time. Management within the facility was very professional and handled very well between the staff members. The people I worked with while I was at the Boys & Girls Club were very friendly and yet professional. They all took care of everything they needed to and taught me to do the same. The hardest part of the job was having to stop working there. I really enjoyed my time there professionally and personally. The most enjoyable time of the job was when I was able to work with the members of the club and speak with the parents of upcoming programs and events.
