Education Specialist (Current Employee), Bakersfield, CAAugust 7, 2014
Pros: children calling me mr. is enough for me.
The best reward about this job, is knowing that children are learning with diversification. On one hand, there is normal day at school where children learn the basics (portraying to their grade). On the other, they have the after school program; where staff like to implement activities and experiments (again, portraying to their grade and what is learned – more... in school). – less

Student Aid (Former Employee), Auburn Hills, MIAugust 1, 2014
Pros: group opportunities, wonderful people, tons of activities for everyone of all ages.

It was wonderful being 13 years old with a job. To make things better, I worked with good friends I went to school with and still talk to, to this day. My role involved running the Snack Bar. I was responsible for the assets and inventory and the handling of childrens' food, lunches, and other personal matter.

The programs and the staff are great for the kids, as well as being close knit among the staff. Kids from 5-14 from all backgrounds make me feel fulfilled at the end of the workday knowing that I am a role model and someone the kids can count on in their life.

Activity Leader (Current Employee), Bakersfield, CAJuly 26, 2014
Pros: we have the same schedule as the school district.
Cons: only part-time, no benefits
A typical day at work begins right after day school ends I greet the students and take them for a snack. The next hour and a half are spent in the classroom. Since they have already been class all day I have to keep them interested and manage their behavior. My co-workers are a great team of people. We are very supportive of each other. We share information – more... and help each other come up with lesson plans that will be fun for all. The hardest part of the job is time management. There is so much to do in so little time. I use the alarms of my cell phone to keep me on track and the students respond well to it also. The most enjoyable part of my job is what I learn from the students. I also really enjoy working with the group of people that are my co-workers. – less

Rec. Aide (Former Employee), Val Verde, CAJuly 25, 2014
Pros: free lunches in summer, lots of fun trips to staff
Cons: short breaks, healthcare and lots of hours
A typical day at The Val Verde boys and Girls Club involves helping kids with homework after school followed by some outside sports activities. I learned to multitask while the kids are outside for a bit with another staff, I proceed inside with some phone calls for trips, filing paper work or faxing. Sometimes while the supervisor is out I have to – more... manage and make choices but for the most part my co-workers and I are a great team, we help each other with what ever one another needs.The hardest part is to gather all permission slips in an decide witch kids are going to be able to attend witch trips. The most enjoyable part about the job is everything, the smiles, the laughs and the great experience I have gained is amazing. – less

Fun Working with Children
Camp Counselor (Former Employee), Daytona Beach, FLJuly 22, 2014
Pros: working with kids
A typical day at work is cleaning the facility before the children arrive from the school, once they have come inside the building attendance is taken then they are able to eat their snack and they are able to go outside and play for an hour, then homework until they have to go home. I have learned how to thoroughly explain things to children, and having – more... the patience for those who are acting out. The co workers were great everyone was able to get along well and when situations happened they were taken care of in the right way. Hardest part of the job was disciplining them and the most enjoyable part was being apart of the kids lives and making a difference. – less
