Growth, camaraderie, and change agent
Coach, mentor, leader (Current Employee) – Pennsylvania – March 21, 2018
Work in previews jobs were stressful.
Do not get me wrong, work is stressful but the support helps lessen the stress with JWYC. The experience with JWYC in regard to flexibility is eye opening to possibilities within child welfare. Other jobs, my experience was so much red tape in working with families that stifles creativity. Here you have the capacity to make your own schedule and flexibility to meet individuals where they are in life. The use of community resources allows individuals sustainability when child welfare professionals are gone.
I've heard leadership throughout the company say we are our own little buisness. This was a different concept for me. Each staff is like a buisness chain. I make my own schedule (with exception for scheduked meetings) to fulfill my role as the family mentor a d coach. I can work early morning, afternoon, evening and weekends if this works for me and those I work with.
The company is filled with compassionate, dedicated, and hardworking staff from top to bottom. They listen and most importantly I see everyone walking the walk.
I truly enjoy the camaraderie and willingness of individuals to listen allowing for our ideas to shape what occurs at all levels of the company.
Flexibility, ability to be creative, leadership
