Everyone was passionate about the company's mission
Intern (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 9, 2016
Typical work day for me would include checking in with the Lead project manager, after checking in with him. It was my duty to initate all project requests from internal customers within Boys & Girls Clubs of America. I've learned how to coordinate, and manage small, and mid size projects accordingly. All of my co-workers were innovative and always searching for ways to reach out to Americas youth across the nation, this gave mea great sense of purpose within my role and added a extra drive for me.
Hollywood, FL - Retail Associate (Former Employee) – West Park, FL – July 7, 2016
The Boys and Girls Club is one of the best jobs to have if you like to work with children. I learned to have patience and to be creative while on the clock to ensure safety of children. No prior work experience needed.
Youth Development Professional (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – July 6, 2016
Its exactly how you would imagine it to be, a great fun place to work! Just wish there were more hours and better pay. I worked in a school based program, so I bet the community programs are even more fun!
The Boys and Girls Club is a great way to get involved with the community! It really makes a idfference in life when you go into a job you love. They have a great support staff there. The most enjoyable part of the job is being around the students.
Gardener (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – July 1, 2016
I loved being able to work in the garden. Though my fellow co-workers were lazy and didn't really do much of the work they were supposed to, leaving me to pick up their slack, which was the hardest part. The little ones, some were very rude, while others were very interested in learning about gardening. I learned how to keep my patience with others and learned how to weed.
Youth Development Specialist (Current Employee) – Victorville, CA – July 1, 2016
A typical day for YDS. As a YDS, I come in 15 mins. before we open our doors to the members. During that time, I arrange room and tables to allow seating. I put out games for our initial check-in grace period. After about 30 mins. into opening, we begin our laid out activities and programs. The programs which we make must be able to have all of ouor members join who range from 5-18 years of age. The hardest part is sometimes having the members participate and having to deal with the unruly members and their parents.
3-4 straight hours, light work, fun
difficult at times, low pay, hard to create/implement broad raange of programs
Attendance Clerk (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – June 27, 2016
I don't work directly for Boys & Girls Clubs of America. My organization is just one of many that carry the boys & girls club. Working at the boys & girls club is a great place to work if you like working with kids from ages 6-18 from all walks of life.
