    This place is awesome! Great for a first job!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCo-workers are great and easy to get along with. They are very good with training. All of my questions got answered. Some of the kids are great to work with.

    ConsPay is probably not the best. Some kids could be a hassle. Some parents are hard to work with. Hours could vary.

    Great work environment!

    AmeriCorps VISTA Marketing/Development (Former Employee)
    Valdosta, GA

    ProsYou are working for an organization that has been around for awhile and you feel good about it.

    ConsSometimes the work load could be a little much, but that's how non-profits are....you do more work for less pay because you BELIEVE in doing good for the community.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider discussing roles in administrative. Even though each person has a title, you would get the run around a lot when trying to find information regarding grants, stats, etc.

    Office Manager/Financial (Current Employee)
    Jeff, GA

    ProsWhere else can have the potential to be an essential, active part of this many youth. You become invested in the relationships that you have the opportunity to build and grow together.

    ConsOngoing leadership and management training should be mandatory.
    Charters should adhere to national job descriptions and HR practices.

    Satisfying, life fulfilling work.

    Unit Director (Current Employee)

    ProsKnowing one is making a difference in the lives of children who need us the most.
    Work is never dull. New challenges and opportunities every day.
    For someone outgoing, great way to become a pillar in the community.
    Can be fun. It's a business of creating a safe and fun atmosphere for children.

    ConsAs a non-profit, compensation for work and experience does not seem to be equal to the for-profit companies.
    Poor work-life balance.
    Available resources are rarely enough to meet given goals and objectives.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore investment and training to develop front line staff, directors and other personnel.

    Such a learning experience!!

    Program Assistant (Former Employee)
    Saint Cloud, MN

    ProsWorking with such amazing kids and helping them to make positive decisions for their future made me absolutely love my internship here!! I really felt that I was helping with the youth and community surround it. The relationships that are made with the co-workers and children is so rewarding!

    ConsI would say that this job is definitely for someone who is really wanting to help out for the cause of what the company offers, if you are looking to make a lot of money - this isn't the right place for you.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
