Volunteer Recruitment Assistant (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAMarch 13, 2017
Voices for Children is a great place to work. The biggest pro is knowing that you're making a difference to youth in foster care -- and to the CASA volunteers themselves! Other pros include the high number of paid holidays (due to the office being closed on court holidays), the 4/10 schedule option (you can choose to work 4 days per week at 10 hours per day), and the variety of trainings and other opportunities for professional development. The cons include high turnover rates, not-so-high salaries, and little room for upward mobility in certain departments.
Pros
Making a difference, paid court holidays, 4/10 flex schedule, interesting trainings
Cons
High turnover, low upward mobility
