Enjoyable atmposhere and decent pay.
Coach (Former Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FLJune 22, 2015
The Boys & Girls Club was a fun experience as my first job. The workers were friendly towards me and made me feel welcome. The kids were a handful at times but overall not too bad. The hardest part of the job was cleaning the basketball court when it rained, that took a lot of strength and stamina. The best and most enjoyable part of the job was when the kids had lunchtime and we had to overlook them.

Bus Driver/Counselor/Activities Assistant (Former Employee), Chicopee, MAJune 2, 2015
Even though I stayed for a short time, nothing brought more fun to me and smiles to my face than seeing the kids and getting to run around with them as well as teaching them how to communicate with other kids and play games without fighting. It was difficult at times because each kid is different, but it was great to come into work knowing that I was someones role model and someone that a kid can tell their parents and siblings about.

Health and Life Skills Coordinator (Current Employee), Waukesha, WIJune 1, 2015
I loved going to work and seeing the kids faces everyday. I felt like I was making a difference in their lives and that they could use what I taught them in their own lives. My coworkers were great and were always there when I needed advice or help with any problems. I enjoyed every minute of going to work, and would not have traded it for anything else.

Vista Member (Former Employee), Yorktown, VAMay 30, 2015
I was responsible for basic camp counselor duties such as manning the front desk periodically, keeping a watchful eye over groups at a time and making sure they stay on task with whichever group they were assigned to at the moment, distributing lunch and snacks, and also in charge of the education component of the program. My co-workers were nice for the most part and so was my site supervisor. He assisted me when I needed help and offered to write any letter of recommendation that I may need in the future.The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to interact with the children everyday and learning their different personalities.

Volunteer (Former Employee), Santa Ana, CAMay 28, 2015
Pros: wonderful people, experiences with kids, learned
I had a chance to work with a great person who gave me a chance to volunteer at their school. I volunteered at Manual Esqueda Elementary and I volunteered for their Boys and Girls Club every day after school. I tutored students in the library with math and English. I also created activities for the girls who were part of the cheer leading team and taught them cheers for upcoming football games. Every day was different and something new to work with which was really fascinating to me. It was nice to hear that the girls would tell my manager that they liked the way I taught them and they actually learned. I found out many things about myself when I volunteered here that I didn't know. When it was time to go to the actual Club the children had plenty of activities and help for those who needed extra help on their homework assignments. I gave them as much of assistance as I could to those students who asked for help.
