Pros

The chance to change the lives of Americas youth for the better.
Working with other individuals who are like minded.
Seeing the success in youth that have left the program and knowing you had a part in that transformation.

Cons

No respect from the youth. Some extreme examples are yelling, throwing of objects, swearing, in your face spitting marathons.

Organization wise, it is my opinion that the focus is now primarily about money and less about the youth of America.

Administration/general lack of support

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put more of the focus on the youth and staff that are on the front line. They are the cornerstone and the real reason behind Boys Towns success.

    I have been working at Boys Town full-time

    Pros

    Working with the kids and seeing the change in them for the better is extremely rewarding. Even in a support position, where you don't work directly with youth or families, all you have to do is go to a home for dinner or attend a function the youth are having and you can see the difference.
    There is training and support for every department. The training for direct care staff is motivating and prepares new employees for their positions.
    Majority of the employees are here for the Mission and it shows.
    Excellent benefits and opportunity for growth & development.

    Cons

    Being non-profit, the salary ranges tend to be a little lower than for-profit organizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep recognizing and rewarding top performers in each program/department!
