Productive and fun workplace
Program Aide, Group Work (Former Employee), Camden, NJAugust 2, 2013
Pros: interacting with the kids
Cons: i liked everything about this job
At work we would clock in and go upstairs with the kids in the education area. In this area the kids completed their homework, and read books and remained quiet until everyone was finished. After that, All the kids were to line up at the coat room so they could put their things up before heading to the recreation areas. Soon as all their things are – more... put up, they are allowed to go and participate in various activities such as Ping pong, Dance central, Flag football, checkers, and many more. The staff would have a specific area that they were assigned to to make sure all the kids are safe and following the rules. When it was time to go, the kids would go back to the coat room, line up quietly, get their things and go into the lounge and wait for their parents. I learned that you have to always be alert. I also learned that even if you are dealing with a negative person, you have to stay positive. It really wasn't a hard part at the job. Everything always went smoothly. The most enjoyable part about the job was interacting with the kids. They always put a smile on my face. – less

Exciting and fun workplace with great kids
Intermediate Site Instructor (Current Employee), Garden Grove, CAJune 25, 2013
Pros: good co-workers, great bunch of kids, fun site to work at
Cons: short breaks, few hours, difficult to advance in the organization
A day at Boys and Girls Club is fairly structured, in terms of the timeline of the day. We have "Power Hour" first, which is like a homework club for one solid hour. This was followed by a half hour snack, and then an hour-long enrichment activity of our choosing. The activity had to cover one of the core elements of BGC. At approximately 4:45 pm, the – more... members who walked home were allowed to leave, and the for the rest of the day, until 6 pm, we would hang out with the members, playing games, getting to know them and allowing them to socialize. My co-workers were all very laid-back and receptive to me. It was easy to get along well with them and sometimes collaborate on ideas or suggestions. I find myself continuing to grow and learn every day that I work there. This is the kind of work I want to do, working with and mentoring youth. The hardest part can definitely be the resistance and bad attitudes that the kids can confront you with on an almost daily basis. However, with a little persistence and compassion, you can see the fruits of your labor in their improved attitudes and outlooks on life. – less
