Working with kids has been a beautiful experience
Program Aid (Former Employee), Staten Island, NYJune 19, 2015
Pros: free lunch
Cons: when you dont understand why a kid came to afterschool sad.
A typical day at work consisted me organizing and cleaning up the class rooms before the children came inside. I also helped the group leader come up with fun activities for the kids to enjoy and gain knowledge on a subject at the same time. The coworkers were friendly towards me because I kept my personal life private. The hardest part of my job was having to know that I probably wont be seeing the same kids I have grown attached to anymore because of various reasons. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know all of the children.

productive and fun day teaching kids how to play basketball
assistant director (Former Employee), ny,nyMay 18, 2015
Pros: free pracftice time to play basketball
Cons: it was only for three hours
A typical day was come in the gym early and shoot around until the kids started to walk in. Next I would hand out the equipment for the activities to be played in the gym. I would then oversee or ref the basketball games until it was time to leave. I learned how to operate a large group of teenagers with disagreements about a foul call. I liked how my co-workers who where older than me taught me how to fill out my time sheet and how to watch and make sure everyone was safe. The hardest part of my job was fighting the urge to want to play basketball but I couldn't because I was working. I enjoyed having the gym to myself before and a little after we closed down for the night and the fact we had Fridays off.

PAL brings youth, community, and school together
Program Coordinator/Center Director (Current Employee), Staten Island, NYMay 16, 2015
Pros: positive work environment
The PAL is a great company to work for. They are a positive force in the community and work to help the youth.
This company promotes based on hard work and not seniority, or job title. A lot of time is taken to have a positive enriching influence on today's youth. The PAL has been around for over 100 years and is still going strong.

Office Manager (Former Employee), Bronx NYFebruary 4, 2015
Pros: fun with the children
Cons: not enough staff
enjoyable place to work, the staff and the children made you want to go to work each day. You would want to see what exciting thing you would learn from the children once they came to the program.
After you completed your day to day tasks of running the office you would look forward to helping the children with their homework. You also remember the lasting memories that you have with children. The summer camp when all of the PAL's would get together.

Students receive quality enrichment at the Police Athletic League
Program Manager (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: free program that offers dinner
Cons: not enough time built in to do all of the activities planned for.
Updating daily attendance and at the end of the month add the attendance into a database that the funders can monitor. Arrange the day with activities and enrichment opportunities for the children that attend the program.
The hardest part of the day is when asked, as urgent, to gain information and send to corporate. It takes from my ritual of the day.
The most enjoyable part of the job is watching the children grow and learn. It is most enjoyable when the students respect their Youth Development Instructors and have fun.

Instructor (Former Employee), New York, NYJanuary 6, 2015
Pros: educating children
Cons: minimum funded program
A typical workday would be to instructor children how to balance education with athletic activities. I learned children are generally willing to learn more when the education includes fun and entertaining activities. Management implemented daily activities for the children. The hardest part of the job was providing with a wider range of activities on a minimum funded program. The most enjoying part of the job was teaching children how to swim and other life lesson skills.

Pros: l iove to work with people
Cons: some people have poor work ethic
I have learned from every job that I have been on. People are precious commodities and I love working side by side with them to accomplish any righteous goal. The hardest part of a job is getting people to raise their standards to a high work ethic.

The co-workers were very nice and professional. A typical day for me consisted of making sure the kids received their breakfast and lunch, keeping an eye on the kids making sure they're doing what they're supposed to do, and make sure everything is in order and clean.
