Secretary and Teacher (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – October 18, 2016
If you like to manage time and plan events for the future this is the place for you. Just make sure to not have anger problems. Otherwise you'll lose the job within a day messing with some of these kids.
Social interaction, field trips, good kids, doing math.

There are many different style people who work for the Boys & Girls Clubs. Some people are better trained than others, It is very important to not get caught up in the staff drama and stick to dealing with and working with the kids!!

I learned the responsibility to help children with their school work. I learned how to communicate with others more often now, and learned how to talk to adults more frequently. I helped clean up things after the children left. Learned how to take the responsibility in having a job that i could work with others. My co-workers and management were all very nice and respectful people.

Program Assistant (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – October 10, 2016
Working at the Boys and Girls Club of Philadelphia is only a part-time job for me. If I were to consider making it my full-time job, I would have a hard time providing for myself. Being as though I am a full-time college student, I only work during holidays and winter and summer reccess. A typicl day at the job consist of snack, power hower (homework), and a physical activity. I learned how to handle children of different bckgrounds and different mental capacities. The Boys and Girls Club is a fun, face paced enviornment full of children. There is never a dull moment. I recommend the job for summer youth, college students, and people tying to get their foot in the door with early chilhood education.
Intern (Former Employee) – Johnson City, TN – October 9, 2016
I was an intern at a local club through my college. Management did not take my two accounts of harassment from a fellow coworker seriously. I finally complained to my university at which point they pulled me from my position and suspended the club from further internships. Otherwise the kids were great! I miss them but not management.
