Adolescent Counselor (Former Employee) – Amherst, NY – July 27, 2015
A typical day at work included providing an intense Summer camp program for children with ADHD and high-functioning Autism. Developed a sports management team in which students assisted in taking inventory of athletic equipment, maintaining the athletic equipment, and setting up athletic fields for afternoon practices and games. Worked with students in developing money management skills through developing and carrying out their own business plan for a weekly parent night concession stand. Co-workers and Management provided excellent support to students and staff alike. The hardest part of the job was learning new skills necessary to effectively reach and educate students. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning new skills and having the opportunity to work with phenomenal students, staff, management, and parents in an exciting and enjoyable atmosphere.
