A typical day consists of groups(social skills, independent living skills, etc.) and group or individual activities(off grounds, flag football, basketball, swimming, etc). I've learned that you can't reach every at risk youth with the same treatment technique. The hardest part of the job is listening to youth disrespect the people that are there to help them. The most enjoyable part of the job, is having a positive impact on at least one of the youth I work with.
