Productive and a fun place to help children with their studies
Volunteered (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVNovember 7, 2014
I volunteered for a couple of hours at the Boys and Girls Club. It was easy to help and engage with the children there. I helped young children with their homework and read a story or two. The children were pretty well behaved for being 5-6 years old. The people who actually worked there were also helpful.

Area Manager
Area Manager (Current Employee), Garden Grove, CAOctober 21, 2014
My typical day at work is to scan our members into our data base. Also maintain communication with other supervisor and mentor them. Then plan out the day, for my afterschool program. Once the bell rings, I have my staff set for the day and their schedules organized. I have my lead run programming. Then, I drive to other sites coach the site supervisors – more... and observe their program. Then, I drive back to my school. Bond and talk with my members. Once it is sign out at 6pm I try to speak to all of our parents.

I love my job and what I do.

I also conduct trainings for the organization.
Help interview for new Youth Development Professionals
Attend Community of Practice Meeting and represent the organization
Speak to school Principals

The hardest part of my job are the hours I work – less

Area Director (Former Employee), Laguna Beach, CAOctober 14, 2014
Pros: flexibilty
Cons: management
A typical day is very rewarding and meaningful. You must be self directed and and self motivated. Management uses a laissez faire style then passive aggressive when issues get complicated. Hardworking co workers however everyone one is in it for themselves. Hardest part of the job is getting support when needed not just lip service.
