Mentor with Reading and Math (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALMay 28, 2015
Working with children and seeing them prosper in their work and activities. I have learned that children are precious and need tender loving care. My management was very helpful. My co-workers was pleasant and helpful. I didn't have any hard part of my job because I got along with others. The most enjoyable part was getting along with others.

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.

fun work place but low pay
Cheerleading Coach (Current Employee), Jersey City, NJMay 28, 2015
Pros: trips
Cons: pay, no lunch break
a typical day at work would be me basically helping out with homework , and after a certain time , then cheer leading starts and that's what entertains me every Monday-Friday which is also the most enjoyable part of the job . my co-workers are like family , they treat any and everyone with kindness and that's the type of environment anyone should want to be in . the hardest part of the job would be the pay ,i ask for more hours almost all the time , for someone who has to pay college tuition's alone shouldn't only work2 hours and get the payroll of a child , i just want a paycheck like everyone else there , i mean i do put in the effort and even volunteer sometimes .

Fun place to work, with generally light office work.
Membership Coordinator (Current Employee), Houston, TXMay 20, 2015
Cons: Not full time.
A typical day at work is answering phone calls, entering member data, and enrolling new members.

I learned how to type quicker, I've gotten way better with my customer service skills, and my memorization skills have improved as well.

My co-workers are all very respectful and it makes the job way easier. There is really no drama or anything other than focus on the kids.

The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know the members and their parents. Very diverse.

Administrator & Director (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLMay 19, 2015
Pros: free lunch & homework snacks for kids, free field trips, parent & volunteer groups are so helpful
Cons: late closing hours for staff
I learned so many new and different things that kids are learning in school today, just by managing the facility and tutoring students after school. It's the BEST and SAFEST place to be after school.

Rigid in Practice
Assistant (Former Employee), Cumberland, WIMay 19, 2015
Pros: Working along side children, watching them learn
Cons: Structure was rigid
The goals of this work place are valuable for society. As someone who is naturally unorthodox, my input was not considered valuable and I felt isolated as a staff member, and I accept some responsibility for that. Strength is learned from example, and the kind of strength I have was not something that is considered valuable in this changing society and world.

Volunteer work - Boys and girls club (Former Employee), Dover, DEMay 19, 2015
Pros: lunch, communication skills, cleaning skills, teamwork
Cons: not many environment opportunites
a typical day at work is fun, draining but you learn so many new things along with teaching the children. I also got to learn so much about children and how they react. the as a manger things as in cleaning, making sure everything and everyone is okay and in place. have to be in order and you answer a lot of questions throughout the day plus the paper work that's involved but I loved it the hardest part was leaving because the children and parents loved to come just to see a smile on their faces made my day.

Fun environment with small work family.
VOLUNTEER (Former Employee), Queens, NYMay 11, 2015
Modells sporting goods was a great environment to work. It felt like a family and the managers listened to what ever problem you may have and try to accommodate you. The customers made it even better. I was able to learn and work in every department and became very knowledgeable with items. Modells always provided an opportunity for personal growth.

The only work they have to offer is during the Spring and Summer seasons. This would be a great job for someone who is home for the summer from college or a high school student

AWESOME
Art Teacher (Former Employee), Odessa, TXMay 11, 2015
Not a money making place. It is non profit but it pays the bills, and thats what a job is supposed to do. I taught art here during the summer program. It was stressful at first becuase I had only previously taught sunday school kids. Not exactly the same group. But I learned how to respect children for what they handle and do, and not for their age. It is definitely not a job you can have without caring.

Teen Program Director/In-House Graphic Designer (Current Employee), Woonsocket, RIMay 10, 2015
Pros: fun activities and programs for kids
Cons: poor pay
Working for a boys and girls club will always be a positive experience because you're making a difference in lives of youths depending on the community you're living in.
This job can become very stressful if you don't have patience and lack the support of management to be successful at this position.
