Fun and rewarding work place
Youth Worker (Current Employee) – Davenport, IA – April 18, 2016
I love a typical day at the Friendly House. During the school year I am in charge of picking kids up from school and taking them to the Friendly House. We play games, help build character and life skills, and give the kids a save haven where they feel like they can be themselves. During the summer we design programs intended to teach the kids while also having a great time.
I love my co-workers and management. There is a feeling of camaraderie among all staff, and that makes the job easier and very enjoyable.
The hardest part of my job is always presenting the children with a good role model. Kid's pick up on subtleties, and me and my co-workers must always be on our toes. The most enjoyable part of my job is making a noticeable impact on the lives of children who don't necessarily have a great home life.
