Even it being just a volunteer position, all employees and fellow volunteers were nice and helpful to each other. Humbling opportunity to meet with patients and their parents. Wonderful atmosphere and a lot of room to grow if you continue volunteering for a while! Disclaimer: Not a place for someone with a faint heart, you have to be able to handle seeing some children in various heartbreaking conditions.

People are friendly and hospitable. It is a great place to grow your career. I have learned to be more calm when in a complicated situation. The hardest part of the job, is when your services are requested and you know nothing about the new technology and have to figure it out pretty quickly to serve your customer.

Working for SKIP is the best job I've had. Although it isn't quite an "office job", the personal time I get with the child is one of my favorite parts of the day. As a Respite Worker, I definitely learned to think quick on my feet, as well as develop patience in areas that I did not have it before.
great working environment, getting to work with kids, the smiles.

I wish they never closed the program KIPP down, because I would still be there. It was the most rewarding job that I ever had in my life. I love kids, but these children were my babies and I loved every last one of them. They had all kinds of disabilities and I learned a lot.
free education, hours of operation and the learning
