I love working at Buffalo Urban league, from feeding homeless people, to landscape work, to food distribution, and even street clean ups. The environment was amazing and the workers are great. It’s a place to work for the people and definitely utilized my leadership skills and made me a better worker.
I would like to work at this company because I enjoying packing and it’s some thing new that I would like to do and the hourly pay is good at $15 an hour.
Getting away from the outside world
This was the worst job experience I’ve encountered in my life. Managers micro manage employees, no support or value in your work ethic and no respect for family life. The demands are unbelievable, managers expect you to work late hours, weekends and take on other employees job duties. This was a horrible place to work. I’ve became anxious and sick.

It was a very productive place and I had lots of fun with the teenagers. It kept me out of the way and kept me busy but once I graduated it was over.
I had fun there and it was something to do to keep me productive and to earn a little pay. The Buffalo Urban League really couldn’t help me though. I listened to their inspiring people they brought to the building to speak to us and that’s kind of helped stir me in the right direction but I knew soon it wouldn’t last. I do recommend the Buffalo Urban League though because for the most part they help the kids do what they have to do and get jobs. They helped me get my learners permit and had me working Summer Youth Jobs through TANIF.
Free fun dates such as ice cream sundays
Short hours and doing work after school
I found it enlightening especially with the seniors. All programs work together as a family to accomplish the goals and needs for the people in the community.
a lot of help for the community in all areas
not enough money to do even more for the community and the employees
Buffalo urber league is a wonder place they help you whatever you need help with dont matter what it is they help you with housing and much more. they not going to turn there backs on you they open there arm up to you they dont shut you out they make you feel welcome.
My day started with follow up phone calls, court dates, supervision and or home visits, depending on the order of importance and schedule. The families we serviced were mandated to receive preventive services for neglect or abuse. We supervised, supported and provided families with links, services and access to community programs through hands on contact, telephone contact, referrals and other trainings/services like parenting, anger management, home services, mental health services and/or substance abuse. Most contacts were home visits, some were school visits and some were supervised visits with Erie County and or services provided through the League or organizations like Salvation Army.
Very productive kept me very busy with kids ages 5-13. I helped set up for breakfast, then got kids ready to get served for breakfast. Then we split up in groups to do arts and crafts, prayer, yoga then we have outside time that's whatever they want to do at the park come back and work on educational time summer readings and then its nap time. the hardest part was working with such a different age group the younger ones you still have to help use the bathroom where as the older ones can just go. My favorite part was going on field trips almost everyday like the museum and the Erie county fair.
got to go many different field trips
short time summer youth job
If you like helping others and feeling like you've done good in the community this is the place for you! The staff is usually very motivated to help the people coming in looking for the resources offered. Like all humanity positions, your pay won't elp in the motivation department, and job security depends on political figures and funding, but they will re-train and reposition you.
