Pros: They reimburse any gas you use during work!
Cons: Unethical deceptive management. Stay away.
It's a job that enables one to have some money while looking for a career or while in school. It should be noted however, if you tell them you're going to school or that you're looking for a career they will get rid of you sneakily. After finishing my job assignment, I was left hanging 3 weeks with no explanation. I contacted management in person who told me nobody was fired or layoff and gave some vague story about low referrals, another words, I still worked there. (Typically you'll be assigned 2-3 youth which you must work around 14-23 hours per week with. You'll average 2 youth a week unless one gets in trouble or sent away then you can cut your pay in half which is a bummer, and it takes about a week to get assigned a youth through referral and intake process.) I was pursuing career making more money elsewhere. Management claimed they were supportive of my decision and said they'd help me get into that career. A few weeks later upon wrapping up my assignment I never heard from Youth Advocate Program again. A few of us were treated this way. Shady Management, but a good way to make some money on the side. Very high stress job for what it pays. You will feel like you worked 40 hours after 14 hour week very mentally draining. Helping kids and changing lives is very rewarding though. I have bumped into parents who thanked me for the good job they said I did, so I know I did a good job. If you're struggling, going to school, or looking to find another job keep it to yourself management will stab you in the back. I thought others deserve to know how I was treated. Just some words of wisdom. Don't expect to make a career of of this job.
