Boys and Girls Club Volunteer (Former Employee) – Germantown, MD – July 8, 2018
I enjoyed working with children so it was a simple experience that i enjoyed quite a lot as a high school student. Many of my Friends also volunteered time after school to help as well. I had a great time and have many fond memories of my time there.
The children were all hilarious
the lunches were a bit over priced for what was available to them
This place was one of the worst experiences I have ever had. The management is so clueless it is not even funny. All they care about is money and not the kids. Management talks about staff when they are not there to other staff and half the time the children are not even supervised. DO NOT WORK HERE!
Boys and Girls Club is a great place to work if you enjoy working with children. They are quick to promote within the company. I would however not take a job in the main office but continue my career working with the children in the sites. If you work in the office you will learn quickly and become disappointed to learn that upper management have no idea whats going on or what they are doing. Everything is done solely on trial and error and they do not have any answers to questions from employees which is scary. They like to make judgement calls with no bases
Very productive place for the youth and young adults

Working here helped me discover my passion for helping others. It taught me how to be mature enough to handle situations that I’m not accustomed too such as mentoring when needed and just being an overall accommodating person. I learned to have better communication skills when dealing with people of all ages and also on how to act and social when put into certain situations as well.
The kids, free food, Free events, sponsored by famous sport teams
Helped set up and helped move things to the storage.

I learned that working with others can brighten your day just overall was there for the experience, didn’t expect to get paid, helped them with lots of things like the front desk, setting tables up, setting up the gym, and moving things around.
productive and challenging activities such as ping pong
Babysitter (Former Employee) – McKeesport, PA – November 15, 2018
A typical day at work is boring, they don't ask you to do anything but pass out lunches or help kids with homework. I learned how to be a responsible mentor for little kids. Management was poor. Workplace culture was not defined. The hardest part of the job was getting there on time, or having to go straight from school to work, having long day. The most enjoyable part of the job was the food, PB&J uncrustables.
It Was a great place to spend. The activities were fun and great time passing.

The Boys and Girls Club was a great experience to gain volunteer work. The work was fun and life-changing, every staff sets a good mood towards the place. Overall, the place is a great area to set the moods up and have fun while getting the work done.
Fun Activites, Times Passing Fast, Great Environment
Staff Member (Former Employee) – West Monroe, LA – November 15, 2018
I really enjoyed working with the kids and the staff. Everyone was outspoken and loved coming to work. We made sure the kids came in and did their homework first. They knew what they had to do everyday so that wasn't a problem. They knew after homework hour that they could play and enjoy the rest of their day there.
Relatively light work, not much manual labor. Duties consisted of monitoring all campers under my watch and assuring their safety. My supervisor orchestrated a boating program for the campers. Throughout we taught campers boating safety and how to operate small and large kayaks, as well as canoes, jet skis and small vessels.

Love my job because I live to help others especially the children. I feel like everyone deserves a chance to get together and make new friends as well as learn and be positive. It's great when you can combine that with having fun in a safe environment working with awesome people.

The power of the BGC is only dependent on the staff in the sites on the ground floor. Retention of these staff is the largest key to success that this org has. I thank all the parents that have trusted their kids with the BGC. They do great work caring, educating and inspiring the youth in the community.
