I worked at Boys & Girls Clubs part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

If you truly like working with kids, then you have the flexibility of creating your own programming (with certain limitation) one on one interaction, and ample opportunity to mentor

Cons

If you are not used to this kind of setting, it may be too much. Instructor to youth ratios are high (1 to 30+), discipline styles can be "mom & pop" type of stuff, so locations don't hold parents or students responsible for their actions, staff morale at some sites are low

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to solicit the funds to bring more full-time positions, i.e. education & healthy lifestyles directors, to the local clubs. Typically more qualified candiates needs more work hours in order to give full focus to one job, instead working 2 part-time jobs in order to make a living. Also, it would great to put a cap on instructor to youth ratios.

    Working at the Boys and Girls Club has its pluses and minuses. The children are the pluses.

    I have been working at Boys & Girls Clubs

    Pros

    It is fun working with kid, get to go on a lot of field trips for free, and only work three hours a weekday.

    Cons

    You only get three hours a day, and depending on your site coordinator determines how much fun you will have

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be on time, make up fun activities for the kids, and try your best to get alone with your site coordinator
