Rewarding at times. Tough schedule
Youth Worker/Team Leader (Current Employee) –  Bolivar, PAJanuary 8, 2018
Job can be either the best job ever or the worst. Long work schedules can have effects on life outside of work. Rewarding when everything is going to plan.

Rewarding but stressful
Youth Worker (Former Employee) –  Bolivar, PAAugust 8, 2017
This position was rewarding because of helping youths but it became stressful with the unpredictability and long days. This position is a give and take, so you have to have the right mindset going in.

Poor management to a dead-end job
Youth Worker (Former Employee) –  Bolivar, PAMarch 23, 2017
Worked there for about a year and a half. This place seemed nice until I took a step back and looked at it.
Typical workday: Wake up at 0500. Deal with kids cussing at you and trying to hit you all day. If they do, it is your fault automatically, even when it isn't.
Management: Terrible. Absolutely terrible. They overstep themselves. They break equal employment policies and lie to you. They seem friendly and supportive until something happens then they are against you. Terrible environment from every management.
Coworkers: Complain and make matters worse.
Hardest part of the job: Every second you are at work.
Pros: medical benefits paid by employer
Cons: minimum wage job. Definitely not worth it. Work anywhere else and you will be happier.
Pros
Medical benefits
Cons
High stress environment. Being punched by kids. Being lied to by management. negative coworkers.

A place to gain experience and that is about it.
Teachr (Former Employee) –  Bolivar, PANovember 5, 2016
They build you up as a new employee then give you very little incentives. Once you learn the ins an outs then they create paper trail and limit your duties and pay cuts follow. They state they are ever adapting to students needs but are unwilling to change from old management SOP's. School setting is a joke. Management is not supportive of change, ideas, or educational staff. Students are repectful and are not the difficult individuals to work with. Essential key employees are ones that go with the flow and their presence on campus is limited.
Pros
Freedom in the classroom
Cons
Lack of motivated and qualified coordinators

If you want to help kids but make no money this is the place for you.
Mentor (Former Employee) –  Bolivar, PANovember 26, 2015
Some Students want help but other want nothing to do with the program. The company says they are a family and here to help its employees but in reality this company only looks out for the upper employees. You get promoted without compensation, taking on many responsibilities and getting paid the same as new entry employees
Pros
Free food. week on week off, .
Cons
They keep taking benefits away, Little pay for the amount of work, Away from family for a week at a time

Art with heart fun atmosphere with poeple who pour their heart and soul into what they do
Mentor (Former Employee) –  Lake Isabella, CAApril 30, 2014
Upon arriving at work we situated all the students, outfitted them an apron so they didn't get completely messy, which sometimes was also a blast too but I digress. It was hard to tell who had more fun, the students or the mentors. At the end of the program we had created props, personal art, posters, and backdrops to be used in a PSA which aired on local news channels.
Pros
Free lunch, laid-back atmosphere, appreciation for the students, recognization for work
Cons
It's hard to say if there were any.
