Please, before you take a look at this organization (though it does fantastic work for the children of the community) the management and way they handle their employees is the complete opposite. For all the care they give for the children in their programs, they could care less about their employees, and treat them as "disposable."
I wanted to be involved because of the work they do for the kids of Boston but I found it much more difficult to deal with the way I was being treated.
I want to urge all of you to really try and get a feel for the style of management and how well you might fit in. If you are the type of person who likes to be yelled at every day, belittled and micromanaged, than this might be a good place for you.
