Pros

Working with kids most in need of my attention is a great calling

Cons

Not enough staff to support growing membership.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop authentically supportive relationships with the staff and identify those who are donating their possible income (job elsewhere) in order to support the members of the organization. These are your true donors!

    I worked at Boys & Girls Clubs full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working as a Director at multiple after school programs and summer camps was extremely rewarding. Some of the kids in the program really need positive mentors. I saw very positive results in many of the children that had difficulties at home, school, etc.

    Cons

    Sometimes BGCA hires staff employees that are too young or immature to meet the emotional needs that some of these children have. These employees often gossip and cause a disruptive environment instead of focusing on the safety and well being of the kids.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training for employees on team work and mandatory classes/training on educational/emotional support and enrichment would be very beneficial for all. Pay higher ranking employees more and reward them for their excellence.
