Terrible company to work for
Program Leader (Former Employee) –  Victorville, CAApril 10, 2019
No culture, management is micromanaging and belittling. Have no sense of heart or real care for mission and children. I give them a few more years before this company crumbles.
Pros
Working with children.
Cons
Micromanaging, culture, work environment, etc.

Awful communication, subs are treated very poorly
Sub Leader (Current Employee) –  Santa Ana, CAApril 4, 2019
I love my job and working with kids, but when it comes to communication with the company it is the worst. Sometimes you will even get straight up ignored. As a sub/pl leader you kind of rely on the site coordinators for what you will do for the day, help with kids acting up, etc. sometimes they are very vague or even have nothing prepared. And when you have a problem with the children and you walkie them, they dont even answer. One time i went to a site and the site coordinator did not even greet me at all or tell me anything. I had to ask another PL. Awful communication its almost disrespectful
Pros
Working with kids
Cons
No benefits whatsoever & disrespect

Great experience for people who want to work with kids!
After School Program Leader (Former Employee) –  Daly City, CAMarch 14, 2019
If you are in college, this job was perfect for flexible work hours from 3 to 6 Monday through Friday. It is great experience for working with kids through teaching and testing your leadership skills. A typical day would be showing up to work at least 30 minutes before the kids get out of school, so around 2:30pm. During the 30 minutes, you need to prepare your supplies like attendance sheets, sharpen pencils, review teaching lessons and outdoor activities. Then, prepare snack time in the cafeteria like setting up the food and drinks. Afterwards, your would go to your designated tables where you will be waiting for your 25 students who are in the same grade. After snack time, you will lead the class to the classroom where you will be helping them with homework and teach lessons. During the time, you will bring them outside to guide them to do a physical activity. Towards the end of program, parents/guardians sign out their children. The team of program leaders and site coordinators meet up afterwards to go over what went well or wrong and how to improve those mistakes. The hardest part of the job is leading a group of energetic kids who sometimes will not listen or follow the rules. the most enjoyable part of the job is the team of program leaders and the site coordinator because you grow to become really good friends and sometimes act as a whole family.

A typical day would be to pick up supplies at the area location then go to school site. At the school site, communicate with the Principal about any upcoming activities or events. Then complete lesson plans for the day or week and prepare any supplies needed to execute the lesson plans. Then await program leaders to discuss lesson plans.

I worked here for 5-6 years and it was a wonderful experience in an after-school setting. Management is a bit iffy as they are always changing, but they have great intentions.

Providing opportunities for students NOT staff

Great program when it comes to working with kids but the wage is not a livable wage. If you're a college student it could work but the hours are not flexible.
Cons
low pay

Fun, but definitely stressful
Program Leader (Former Employee) –  Moreno Valley, CAJanuary 22, 2019
Working with the kids is always a lot of fun, but a lot of stress comes with the job. Higher up isn't always supportive and it all feels repetitive. I felt that they asked for a lot of unnecessary tasks during the program hours and it was not worth sticking around for.

Productive, fun work place and environment
Program Leader (Current Employee) –  Perris, CAJanuary 18, 2019
A typical day at work is helping the children with homework and enhancing their reading and math skills. We do fun activities like math games and English games. Things I've learned was how to get the whole class attention with attention getters and how to make the class fun and engaging as well as how to talk to children. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the trouble makers and getting them to engage in the activities as well as getting to participate. The most enjoyable part if the job is seeing the children having fun and being happy in the program.
Pros
Leave early, enter in a later time, pay
Cons
no breaks, no paid vacations

Productive and rewarding company to work for
Program Leader (Former Employee) –  Perris, CAJanuary 17, 2019
My day consisted of arriving at 2:45 and preparing my lesson plans/classroom. Then, program leaders will sign in/give a snack to students in the after-school program. Program leaders would take their class into classrooms in where students worked on homework for 45 min. The students then had an enrichment which consisted of archeology, art, English, math, outdoor activities, and more. Lastly, students transitioned to closing which consisted in bus leave/parent sign out/free time.
Pros
working with middle schoolers
Cons
part-time job

A good place to get a foot in school work. You get to see if working with students is a job for you. Great bosses. Poor Human Resource workers is one of the major issues.

Fun workplace
Program Leader (Current Employee) –  Lake Elsinore, CAJanuary 7, 2019
It is a fun and rewarding job but it can get challenging working with kids. You have to be truly passionate about the job to get through the week because the pay, low hours, and poor upper management will make it almost unbearable.
Pros
Fun working with kids and staff is friendly
Cons
Low hours and pay

Productive workplace and useful information is acquired.
Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Santa Ana, CAJanuary 3, 2019
A typical day at work consists of helping each child grow academically and enhance their knowledge on difficult material. I learned to become patient because it helps not only the student but the tutor as well. I gained valuable management skills that helped me become organized. The learning environment is extremely diverse and valuable information is learned. The hardest part of the job is assisting children with homework in a limited amount of time. The program runs for an average 3 hours. Moreover, other activities are included in the program that limit how much time you can help each child. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing each child grow intellectually and seeing the dedication and effort provided to each child pay off.
Cons
limited time of program hours.

Volunteer Assistant (Former Employee) –  Moreno Valley, CAJanuary 3, 2019
Meeting the children the first week is a little awkward but after a while they learn to love you. The program is only a couple weeks long and the bond you create with these kids are great.
