Good, fulfilling work, friendly environment, everyone is extremely kind and patient. It is a great place to work!
Summer program staff/ supervisior (Former Employee), London, ONSeptember 9, 2013
Pros: morally fulfilling work, you know that what you are doing is good for the community, the fun kids and co workers
Cons: no compensation for volunteers but starting pay could be better, but it is non-profit, and to work with a bunch of kids, you need to put your full attention on them all day, keep your eyes open on them all day and prepare to handle a lot of arguments and conflicts, that will make you exhausted at the end of the day for sure
Management is great, and working there helped me find new and creative ways to reach the students. When I first started, and was having trouble, my manager (who left soon after) literally told me "Just do what you think is right!', when asked for advice. The atmosphere was beautiful! Organization & good communication are key in order to be successful. – more... Kids and co workers were extremely friendly and fun to work with. – less

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
