Counselor-In-Training (Former Employee) – Germantown, MD – June 7, 2017
I worked there for 2 summer as a counselor in training and I do not regret a second of it. Working at the Boys and Girls club was a fantastic experience for me and I really appreciate all the individuals who worked there. It was a great atmosphere and the superiors really cared about our well being and all the people I worked with, counselors in training and the regular counselor were really nice. I learned a lot about leadership and having to work well with other people. The hardest part of the job probably is just maintaining control and remaining calm at all times with the different behavioral issues of the different kids.
The atmosphere, trips with the kids, relationships formed

Teacher (Current Employee) – Lawrence, MA – September 25, 2017
This is an amazing company to work for. I enjoy the hours, the staff and I specially enjoy my students. Boys and Girls Club management is impeccable, professional and agreeable to work with. I would work for this company indefinitely if more hours were offered and benefits were given as consequence. Time flies by when working there.

Youth Development Counselor (Former Employee) – San Leandro, CA – September 25, 2017
Boys and Girls club of san Leandro taught me how to properly handle classroom settings, positive approach to discipline and gave me the freedom once i was certified to be a youth development coordinator to run enrichment classes which taught healthy lifestyles college preparation and even emotional therapy through art. The work environment was stress free and full of learning by trial sand error.
Program Specialist (Former Employee) – Ken Pruitt Unit – September 23, 2017
Really loved working with Boys and Girls Club. Had a thrilling experience during the summer.. was then placed at a different location for school year (Morningside Elementary) and quit shortly after due to very very poor management and staff. I have many friends that were fortunate to stay at my previous location and apparently were overflowing with staff, when at my location.. roughly two minutes away, I was the only program specialist. My director and assistant director were nothing but horrible to me and clearly had no idea how to treat kids and were very unprofessional/unorganized.
Camp Counselor (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – September 23, 2017
From what I learned while working at the Bellevue Boys and Girls is to always be respectful of other people. The hardest part of the job and the main job is just dealing with the kids. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the kids grow up.
Clubhouse Director (Current Employee) – Arizona – September 22, 2017
Love my work knowing I make a difference in the life of a young person daily. Being a person who has been on the receiving end of the programs and activities offered while growing up. I know that the programs matter and the relationships we build with our kids day in and day out truly make a difference.
Federal Grants Assistant (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 21, 2017
BGCA was a great place to work. I gained a lot of experience in the administrative field during my time there. You were allowed to learn and grow in many areas of my career. There was no pressure and I did not have supervisors watching over me, which is how I do my best work. I would recommend this employer any day.
