Program Manager (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – July 10, 2017
The culture is unstructured, and lack motivation, but I can work with that as long as the goal is to become more structured and set clear programmatic goals, however the culture is resistant to change which means change for the better is met with fierce resistance. The teen center in Brooklyn has no programming or a daily schedule that speaks to the growth and development of our youth, there is no movie night, no hip hop or modern dance, or yoga....intentional programming is dead. The empowerment director supervises DYCD programming which leaves empowerment program for teens to fall to the way side with no clear direction. The young staff is constantly on their cell phones. The young staff could benefit from training but that seems to evade upper management. The center was recently on a CAP/WIP with a major funder and I am not surprised as to why.
This place lacks consistency and leadership. The turn over among center directors, center managers, assistant center directors, and group leaders are high. There must be serious and thought provoking training among the staff in order for this location to meet and exceed the expectations of parents, teachers, school leadership, DYCD, and funders.
Healthcare after 30 days.
Staff culture and lack of training
