Save Yourself
Mid-management position (Former Employee), Chicago, ILDecember 31, 2013
Pros: i am no longer employed by them.
Cons: they will negatively impact my finances for years to come.
Staff and youth at the center level is good, but the lack of leadership, vision, and ethics at the senior management level greatly outweigh the joys of youth work. I've seen too many good people get burned by this company, including myself. Don't expect competitive pay or career advancement.

A wonderful environment to work.
SPECIAL EVENTS DIRECTOR (Former Employee), Chicago, ILDecember 17, 2012
Pros: the agency and its staff work as a team
Cons: benefits (especially healthcare) could be better
A small but effective development department that worked hard every day to raise awareness and funding for disadvantaged youth.

Chicago Youth Centers is fortunate that they have a great, caring Board of Directors who take ownership of managing the direction of the agency and assisting with major gifts.
