Fun work place and very committed to the children
Volunteer (Former Employee), Raleigh, NCAugust 27, 2014
Everyone is there for a purpose. Working accordingly and together is how this franchise works. By helping the children with time management by dividing when to do homework and when to play. Instilling the work ethic early so as children they are more committed to being goal orientated than later in life. The best part of it all was just seeing the smiles – more... of the children once they accomplished something. – less

FUN AND PRODUCTIVE WITH SEVERAL DIFFERENT MENTALITIES
Program Assistant (Former Employee), New Bern, NCAugust 27, 2014
Pros: bonding with the children
Cons: n/a
I LOVED WORKING AT THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB.. IT GAVE ME TIME TO GET TO KNOW SEVERAL DIFFERENT GENERATIONS OF KIDS. A TYPLICAL DAY AT WORK WOULD BE HELPING THE KIDS WITH THEIR SCHOOL WORK WHEN THEY GOT OUT OF SCHOOL. TUTORING THE KIDS IN AREAS THAT THEY NEEDED ASSISTANCE WITH. WHEN SCHOOL IS NOT IN SESSION WE WOULD DO ACTIVITIES WITH THEM EVERYDAY TO – more... KEEP THE KIDS FROM GOING OUT AND GETTING INTO TROUBLE. MY CO-WORKERS WERE AMAZING WE ALL WENT IN WITH THE ATTENTIONS TO MAKE CHANGES IN THE CHILDREN LIFES. ALOT OF THE KIDS THAT ATTENTED THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB WAS TROUBLED CHILDREN AND CHILDREN WITH ONLY ONE PARENT. ONE THING I LEARNED FROM THIS EXPEREIENCE IS THAT JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE KIDS DOESNT MEAN THEY DONT HURT ON THE INSIDE.. – less

Pros: happy kids
Cons: mad/sad/bad kids
A normal day for me was helping kids with their homework, watching them while they played on the computers and playing in the gym with them. In just 25 hours, these kids taught me how to be more caring and even more polite.

Volunteer Work/Community Service (Former Employee), Rochester, NYAugust 20, 2014
Pros: i got to experience the glee that overcame the students faces when i came in everyday
Cons: i didn't get to do it for more hours
I would come in and help the students out with whatever activity they had scheduled for that day. I learned that helping others is one of the greatest satisfactions that I had ever had.I worked with all older co-workers so the students especially loved having someone with youth and that was hip to the things that they liked. There wasn't a hard part – more... to the job, the most enjoyable part was when i would see they getting happy over regular thing that we take for granted like getting on the bus, and etc. – less

Junior Staff (Former Employee), Cleveland Heights, OHAugust 12, 2014
Pros: changing lives
Cons: not enough hours
A typical day of work here consisted of me clocking in and monitoring youth grades K-11. Cleaning the areas that were needed, serving the kids dinner and making sure everything was stable as far as the kids knowing what to do and what not to do. From this job I learned how to deal with kids from different age ranges at once. I learn patients and how – more... to provide a personality that's needed to catch the respect from the wide variety of kids I monitored. I mentored kids and I helped them work on their personal growth as well as interpersonal skills. My co workers were all a great help on me doing so. The hardest part of the job was getting everyone's attention. The most enjoyable part was the activities we would do after I have received they're attention as well as seeing the kids happy and enjoying themselves. – less

A typical day at the boys and girls club was to help the kids with their homwork, excercised and get the kids active and help the kids learn life lessons everyday. The management at the oys and girls club was really good they made sure everything was set up correctly and they did their job. I loved all my coworkers at the club we all got along very – more... well. The hardest part about the job is hen you get attached to the kids and then you have to leave them.
