Peer Mentor. Great Experience
Peer Mentor (Former Employee), Norristown, PAFebruary 1, 2014
Pros: working with young adults
Cons: having to leave my job
A typical work day, would include planning work shops, ice breakers and general life skills information for young adults. Having one on one sessions with the foster care youth, to help them with goals they wanted to accomplish. My co-workers were great, If I needed any help with anything they were there to assist me. The hardest part of my job was leaving. – more... I loved everyone that worked there. The most enjoyable part of my job was being there for the young adults who were in the foster care system. For them to have someone to communicate with them and for them to see that someone was there to help them. – less

Appreciate the mission and values but can be stressful
Life Skills Counselor (Current Employee), Bethlehem, PAJuly 2, 2012
Pros: the vacation/sick time is very generous
Cons: stressful and a lot of driving
Being a case manager at VYH has taught me many useful skills such as multi-tasking, problem solving etc. However, the job does require you to drive a lot.
