Employment Mentor, Chicago, IL - May 17, 2017
I absolutely loved working at Lawrence Hall, more specifically working in the MY TIME (employment) program. The program was fairly new, so it required a lot of work from everyone on the team, however, management was open to innovative ideas and everyone on the team had the opportunity to have a significant impact on the success of the program. Although the pay was not great, I had a great work-life balance, learned a lot about the field and established great relationships with both staff (including management and executives) and the clients that we served. The reason I had to leave the position was due to moving to a different state for school. Overall, it is a great place to work if you have a passion for working with youth and positively changing their lives.
