Program Aide (Current Employee), New York, NYJune 23, 2014
they dont care about their staff. its favoritism.but most staff is great like super great (most) on beginning level not management
its hard to move up if u dont kiss you no or sleep with someone. even tho you shouldnt have to do that.
you can lost your job at anytime and the kids can be outta control at times. like cursing you out or hitting you and – more... they dont really get in trouble.
plus they have you lie for the bigger ppl, like you have to lock down no kids in the hallway no bathroom no nothing when a vister is in the building hcz isnt about their mission anymore its about money/politics – less

I started working at Harlem Children's Zone as a afterschool tutor while I was still in high school. I have learned a lot, such as being able to multitask work at a fast pace and much more. The company does allow you to move up, I started as a afterschool tutor and I am now a Teacher's assistant.
The site that work with is very family based which I – more... love! We help and care for one another I have gained a second family! With any job you will have your ruff days. The most enjoyable part of the job is watching your student grow. – less

Productive somewhat but a lack of re implementing the core values that they preach.
College Intern (Former Employee), New York, NYApril 23, 2014
Pros: great group of people to work with
Cons: long working hours usually 10-12 hours a day.
Though out my day I would be in charge of cleaning all facilities, managing all task involving the copier. So this would include faxing, scanning, and copying documents to emails. I also tutored college students who were at least two years under my college level so for example i tutored freshman in college while I was a junior.

Laid Back and Chill Environment
Academic Case Strategist (Current Employee), New York, NYNovember 12, 2013
Pros: relaxing environment
Cons: lack of support, advancement
The atmosphere is very laid back. Most of the time you have to be independent and take the initiative at getting things done. More support needs to be given on managements part, but if you need a stepping stone in life and to learn basic competencies this is the agency for an individual.

Pros: different experiences.
Cons: no benefits for parttime workers.
A typical day at work will consists of signing the participants into program and asking them how was their day at school. I have learned how to help families within the community and to be a role model to the participants in the program. I learned how to management my time and to be very organized with filing away folders. While working at Harlem Children's – more... Zone my co-workers became more of a new family away from home. The hardest part of my job is dealing with the changes spur of the moment. And the most enjoyable part of the job is helping the children achieve thier goals. – less
