Student Advocate (Current Employee) – New York, NY – July 27, 2017
Great place to work. I've learned time management skills. I also built great relationships with both my students and colleagues. To work in a place where teens are willing and able to learn new things as well as teach the adults new things is the make up of a great work environment. and this is what you will expect when working with Harlem Children Zone.
Arts Specialist (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 21, 2017
I cannot imagine a positive review of this organization, unless the reviews were orchestrated by admin. The turnover is high for a reason! Experienced educators leave, and other experienced educators are deemed " not right for the culture"and removed. In all of my years of teaching, without doubt this was the most unpleasant experience that I have ever had!!!
Assistant Director (Current Employee) – New York, NY – July 17, 2017
Located in the heart of Harlem, Harlem Children Zone is exciting, and challenging. Good place to work for college graduates to gain work experience.. Working with kid you learn patience and compassion. You learn how to deal with different personalities including parents. The hardest part is dealing with disobedient children and fining ways to discipline. In the same toke the most enjoyable is working with the kids, having fun with them and teaching them new things. As well as learning from them and how to better myself.
Job is semi fulling if you have a passion for Health and Wellness, a cool organization to be part of
Health Coordinator (f/t) (Current Employee) – Harlem, NY – July 11, 2017
Company is very disorganized but there is opportunity to create what you want. Management is horrible and the hours are long. Many times you are working very far outside your job description due to understaffing and poor management.
Calm enviroment with a well balanced level of fun and learning.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 8, 2017
When I walked in, I would walk into the supervisors office to see which section she wanted to place me in. There was the computer room, the gym, and the homework room. Whichever area she decided to send me to I had to make sure the kids were safe and doing what they were suppose. I also needed to be there in case a child needed help with something whether a game or their homework. The hardest part of the job was learning how to discipline the kids who had trouble respecting the staff. The most enjoyable part was seeing how much fun the kids had and realizing how much of an impact you had on their lives.
Administrative Office Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – July 5, 2017
Open at 830 am. Learned how to work with different people and different cultures. Management is ok. Love working with the kids. The hardest part of the job for me is when student don't graduate from high school. It's heartfelt because the work so hard for the last 4 years and cant graduate because of a low test/regents grade. the most enjoyable part is seeing the student grow up and go to college and succeed in life. I also love it when they come back to visit and say i GRADUATED FROM COLLEGE.
Intern in public school summer camp (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 13, 2017
The job is fun if you are interested in entering the education field. You assist the year round staff with all their regular tasks. You get to go on trips. The hours aren't bad. The shifts are short. Its Monday through Friday.
When on trips everything is free. Exposure to new things.
Short breaks. Pay is low for the work being done and the first check comes at the end of the month

Science/Math Tutor (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 4, 2017
The kids are great and it is a joy to work with them, help them with life choices, and watch them grow. There is not a lot of official feedback or serious expectations set so it is up to you to hold yourself to a high standard. You should though.
