Youth Specialist /Transportation Coordinator (Current Employee), 1525 North Ritter Ave – August 25, 2014
Pros: that you get to break bread with the youth have a conversation with them/
Cons: you dont get your own personal break and when you do its only 30 minutes.
Fast pace job, can be stressful at times. Learn more about youth with disorders and personal issues in life. Management can be non-caring and not consistent enough for this type of field. Co-worker can be more compassion at their jobs than just a pay check. The hardest part is when you cant help a youth get to the other place in their journey, the enjoyable – more... part is when you have successfully help an youth and you see it on their face, – less

A normal day consists of me helping disabled persons live their daily lives as normally as possible. I do different things such as bathing, dressing, cleaning, and assisting with eating.

My co-workers are important to my job because we – more... team up to help our clients with what they need. The hardest part of the job is seeing people not be able to do things that most take for granted. The most enjoyable part of the job is how appreciative my clients are for helping them. – less
