Host said: What do you enjoy most about being a youth counselor ? What do you dislike the most? Is it challenging? Are there many opportunities to learn and advance?
What keeps you at your job?
I have been working in a residential program for 2 years. The pay is lousy but at the end of the day I feel like im doing some good for the clients. Its not challenging but you need to be able to improvise as situations change. Everyday I learn something new, the training is good but you will learn more through experience. Its not a job that one can advance in, but it is a stepping stone into the more complex jobs in the field.
