Productive and fun place
Tutor (Former Employee), Wilmington, CAApril 8, 2015
Work was very enjoyable. Management was great and co-workers were very friendly and helpful. I learned how to to interact with children and teens and assist them with anything they needed. The most enjoyable part of the job was when a student improved their grade or scored high on an exam. It was great to see their hard work paying off.

Fun, productive, and educational work place.
Youth Development Professional (Current Employee), Tracy, CAApril 5, 2015
Every day at the Boys & Girls Club is a positive, and productive day. I've learned a lot when working with our members and communicating. All of my coworkers are great team players working together if we need each others assistance with our members here at the Boys & Girls Club. The hardest part of my job is balancing the one hour we have each program to provide the necessary information for our members because there's a lot of information, but I get done, I give the information to our members in a fun/educational way, and I do it in a timely manner. I enjoy spending time with our members, and my coworkers because I learn something new every day.

Pros: Everything
Cons: None
Organize, plan sport 12 programs for ages 5-18 years old.
I learned how leadership skills when managing and training volunteers and new hires. Worked with encouraging and uplifting people. The hardest part of this job was learning to transform my way of communicating from a 5 year old, to a teenager, to a board member, to a parent, to my executive, to a sponsor etc. The most enjoyable part was working with the kids, it felt like I was a kid and never felt like I was actually working full time.
