    Pros

    Knowing 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.

    Cons

    As 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 Management

    More investment and training to develop front line staff, directors and other personnel.

    Pros

    Working 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!

    Cons

    I 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.
