Program Specialist (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 19, 2016
It was exciting to work for the JCC with all different age groups from young children day camps, youth programs, single events and senior citizen activities. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to see the community build relationship and laugh together.

Athletic Coach (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – May 15, 2015
Working as a coach there was really productive. The gym is full during the season and they organize it well enough to have at least 4 teams practicing on the two courts. The hardest part of the job really was just trying to fit everything into the hour of practice because its always so much information yo want the kids to leave with. But its a great experience to be able to bring the kids together and get them to bond and become a family through sports.
Good opportunity to work (coach, score clock & book, or even referee)

Volunteer (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – May 3, 2015
I first heard of the Jewish Community Center when I was in third grade because a teacher or a counselor recommended I attend. After much consideration I started going there for its lovely after school program as well as summer camps and a weekend program in which they would teach me how to dance and the Russian. When I was in high school I thought that i should give back to the city by being a volunteer since this place really mad me feel amazing. My typical duties includes collecting ticket stubs for the various events that they have there as well as setting up tables for other events. The most fun part of this job is giving back to the community
Lead Toddler/Preschool Teacher (Former Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – April 9, 2015
Entering the Jewish Community Center, you were always welcomed with a friendly greeting and a smile. The staff from both the Community Center and the child care center worked and communicated wonderfully, and made for a very pleasant environment. Incorporation of the Jewish religion and customs into the daily routine was done with refinement and enlightenment. There was such a warm sense of family and belonging, even though I was not Jewish. A wonderful place to work and great child care!
Friendly staff, diverse enrollment, discounted employee child care

Front Desk Greeter (Former Employee) – Oak Park, MI – May 4, 2015
I gained experience greeting people who walked into our building. I learned to show people how wonderful of a place we were in. Working for a non-profit was very rewarding. I love being able to help people.
Everyday was a busy day. I worked hard and kept my routine work very organized. So my co-workers thought I was very helpful and enjoyed working with me. At the same time I had learned a lot from their strengths in their way of managing the classroom. My boss was very amicable and supportive.
it was a fun and educational environment, with a lot of love.
Lifeguard (Current Employee) – York, PA – March 18, 2015
Typically i would work the open shift at 4:45, where I would open the doors to the pool and guard until the early morning. Members always came in with smiling faces and a positive attitude. The staff the night before would complete tasks to make opening each morning a delight rather than a chore.
Teacher Assistant and Counselor (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – December 13, 2014
Walking in past welcoming co-workers and manager that are at front desk. Everyday I learn something new about each child. Management has always been great along with my fellow co-workers who also work in classrooms as I do. The most enjoyable part of my day would have to be coming into work to my class. Each child brings joy to my day for different reasoning.
Early Childhood Education Teacher (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – February 19, 2015
The children are amazing and I would certainly allow my future kids to attend their preschool, however not until they are 3 or older. There is a lot of drama, but it is to be expected in a hallway of 22 women. The directors tell the employees to come to them if they have any problems and then they tell you to deal with it yourself and not to talk about it to anyone, which is understandable but if they do not listen then nothing gets solved. The hardest part of the job is feeling like you do not want to let the children or their parents down so leaving when you are in a toxic environment is out of the question. The co workers are great despite the drama in almost every room, luckily it has not effected the children. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping children succeed and preparing them to join the wonderful world of learning.
Fun and enjoyable place to work every day is an adventure
