The job can be rewarding working with youth. Everyday is an opportunity for new experiences. I have had great training and have learned alot. If you are on a competent team then management typically has minimal involvement on a daily basis. You can typically have access to managment also on a daily basis. The hardest part of the job at times is dealing with other staff who may not hold themselves to a high ethical standard. at times working with youth can be challenging, for instance, youth who become physically and verbally aggressive. The most rewarding part of the job is helping youth to reach a higher potential and seeing them transform into more positive citizens when they complete the program.
