Requites teamwork, has great potential but, is poorly organized
Counselor/Tutor (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – July 8, 2015
At my time at SASF, building relationships and developing teamwork is the easy part. They hire bright and accomplished individuals who use their skills in academics or sports to influence and engage with the children.
However, a lot of that talent is wasted or delayed because of poor upper management decisions. If you walk into the headquarters in Queens, NY you can see them all lounging around laughing. At the schools, where all the real work is done, everyone is hard at work. - Or they try to be while waiting on an approval letter from HQ to do anything outside of the school site. An organization that is controlled by it's funders can never be good.
Other than that, my time at SASF has been very enjoyable; my experience with every activity has taught me new things about teamwork, discipline and making the right choices. The part I enjoy most is being able to influence the students with all that I myself have learned and with positivity.
Trips around the city, flexible schedule (especially if you are a student), good pay, great co-workers, friendly environments
Less then 20 a week, Lengthy hiring process (took me two whole months)
