Afterschool Lead Counselor & Step Dance Instructor (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – July 31, 2015
Good Shepherd Services is an outlet of service really to all mankind, with a specific importance on disadvantaged youth. The many services the organization provides is astounding, but the personnel may be to blame for lackluster service.
Administrative Assistant intern (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – July 15, 2015
My time working there was enjoyable and memorable the workers there was always helpful and cool. In this job I learned how to use a fax machine. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work together with a few friends to get things done. A typical day at work was always funny and hard working
Group Leader/ Admin (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, New york – June 23, 2015
Very fun environment kids were amazing. Good shepherds also has a very good reputation. They cared about the children and the employees if you ever needed anything there where there to assist. I also feel the hardest part of my job is when the company at this school closed down due to organization. I feel like we should have been given the opportunity as whole company to make this work for the children's sake.

Residential (Former Employee) – Halethrope, md – July 6, 2015
This place should not be still standing. The building is not equipped for the individuals that they provide help for. Turn over rate is high. Staff is consistently getting hurt. The mission is great but can be fulfilled at this day and age.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – June 25, 2015
Worked as a temp but had the opportunity to move up. Co-workers very professional and friendly. Awesome management. Work with 17 1/2 years old to 20 year old kids to help them get their HS diploma via night classes. Interacted with the principal of the school and reported the attendance daily.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – May 12, 2015
I loved the staff/team I was able to work with (at an afterschool program). For the most part, everyone is really passionate about helping children. For a nonprofit, the hourly pay rate is great, however hours are capped at about 18-20 for part time workers. The upper management was annoying and a big downside to this organization. Seem to do so little, but always have unnecessary suggestions. Essentially, be ready to do a lot of work outside of your job description and rarely get noticed or rewarded. I didn't mind this aspect because I loved being able to help, but if bonuses and rewards are what you seek, look elsewhere.
Fun and passionate coworkers
district directors, not a lot of hours offered, few incentives
Can be productive, but the structure of the facility is not professional.
Group Leader (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – May 5, 2015
A typical day at work would be overseeing the participants (teens) who attend the after school program while they attend their activities i.e basketball, computers etc. My coworkers are not as receptive as they should when it comes to viewing things from other perspectives and etc..
My role suits being a mentor for children and teenagers.
unsafe neighborhood, poor structure, poor managment and professionalism.
Productive And Cool To Be Around So Many Different Personalities
Leader in Training (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – April 27, 2015
A day at work would be some kids catching fits because they don't want to do a certain activity. I learned how to react to certain situations with the kids.My co-workers were hilarious and very open minded.The hardest part of my job was to not knock them kids upside they head when they get really disrespectful.The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing the kids happy and having fun.
