productive and challenging workplace with very enjoyable kids
Janitor/Maintenance / teachers assistant (Former Employee), Ventura, CADecember 13, 2013
i cleaned and set up tables for kids lunches and had a small break while they ate then i put tables back up and swept and mopped ( if needed ). After lunch i would assist any teacher that needed assistant with their class. If no specific teacher needed help, i could go from room to room to help each Teacher out a Little bit whether it was from helping – more... students with work, or organizing a bookshelf. I learned how to have more patience for people and how doing something as little as helping a kid cut out a picture meant more than it seems. The staff was super friendly and gave me tips on how to do things i had never tried to do :). the hardest part of the job was trying to keep backpacks and sweaters off the floor because once i finished picking them up, they would be right back on the floor. Not necessarily hard, but had to be repeated the most throughout the day. Taking out the trash was sometimes a struggle as well. the bags were soo packed to the point where they'd break or drip all the way to the dumpster. the most enjoyable part was getting to play games with the kids when they had their break and i had mine. Getting to meet new people and having a good time throughout the day while getting things done. – less

The most enjoyable part of the job is the children and the relationships that you build with them. They come from different backgrounds but they meet in one common place, the Boys and Girls Club. I really enjoy working with them.

Fun and exciting place to be
Program Specialist (Former Employee), Rotterdam, NYDecember 8, 2013
Pros: being around kids
Cons: not enough hours
Depending on the part of the year, during the school year my day started out with helping the kids do there homework. Then I would go to dedicated area where there was a lot of kids and manage that area. During the summer time we had a schedule we went off and that would be what we would do for the day, it would change everyday. For example one hour – more... would be dedicated to a program or the next hour would be playing a game outside. Every hour would be different. I learned a lot of patience being around kids all day. The hardest part of my job were the hours. The most enjoyable part was teaching kids new things and keeping them active. – less

It was a fun workplace because of the children I worked with. I learned that work can be fun but also a lot of responsibilty, I also learned time management.

Psychology Intern (Former Employee), Hartsville, SCNovember 6, 2013
The most enjoyable part of this job was working with the children. A lot of the times they would work against me or there would be a few that didn't want to listen and were determined not to like me. However, with time and patience all of them eventually grew to love the days that I came to work with them and that was amazing.

This is a place of temporary employment, not a career builder. Downsizing has been a focal point for the last few years and under the current management I cant foresee a bright future for this organization.

Special Events Coordinator and Leader (Former Employee), Newport News, VAOctober 27, 2013
Pros: great trips
Cons: all positive
Overall the co-workers were great. I was able to experience certain things through donations that I wouldn't otherwise given much thought (fishing and attended race car show). A typical day at work is assuring the youth complete their homework. Patience is the key when working with adolescents as well as proper time management. However, at the end of – more... the day if the parents and the youth are smiling than that's all the enjoyment I need. – less
