I spent a year as an AMERICORP VISTA volunteer at St. Patrick Center.
Americorp VISTA (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJuly 8, 2015
St. Patrick Center was a great place to work. It is the largest provider of services to the homeless community in the Midwest. I was a project coordinator for a new program called the BEGIN New Venture Center. This was a small business incubator that provided services to low income individuals to assist them in starting their own business.
Pros
I learned a lot about starting a small business. My co workers were great.
Cons
It only lasted for 1 year.

Servicing client's lease.
Client Services Specialist (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOFebruary 24, 2013
My typical day at work is making appointments to renew, relocate or move-in clients into rental property of their chose. Talking and mailing information to present, past and potential landlords in regards to client's rent and lease terms. Documenting information into the computer and working with Outlook. Conducting home visits and home inspections.

At first, I knew nothing about the program I work for. After working a month, both (one being the coordinator) of the employees working with me quit. Within that month's time period, I learned enough to work independently and train the new employees, including the coordiantor. I learned the importance of team work.

I enjoy working with my co-workers, especially my past supervisor. The manager of the program gives goody bags for each holiday to all the staff in the department and have monthly birthday celebrations. I learned to work with clients that have varies disabilities and needs.

It is gratifying housing clients that have been homeless, and learning new information regularly.

I have not had a coodinator that is willing to learn as much as possible about the program and show leadership skills that would lead the program into success.
Pros
the knowledge i continue to learn about the program i work for.
Cons
knowing more about the program than my coordinator.
