I have been working for New Directions for over 5 years. Previous to working for NDYFS I had many different kinds of jobs. I had never stayed with a company more than a year. When I started working for NDYFS I learned what it was like to make a real difference, and to work with a group of people all focused on making positive changes. The people who work here are like a family, and there is such a supportive atmosphere. There is definitely a unique atmosphere that is one of a kind. Working with at risk youth and families is as challenging as it is rewarding. The benefits are good, there is a abundance of PTO time, dental, medical, free meals, and job security. There is also a lot of room for advancement within the agency.
great supportive atmosphere, a LOT of pto time, the ability to make a difference
the pay isn't what it should be (although not awful), can be stressful at times
