I have been working at Boys & Girls Clubs

Pros

The opportunity to mentor children and change lives is priceless!

Cons

Management and administrative decisions are last-minute and strenuous on the staff! Be prepared to give up multiple weekends for obligated 'volunteer work'. Children to staff ratio is 50:1.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow innovative changes to take place within the organization. Strive to provide funds for outstanding programs. Communicate important news as often as possible, so as to not place strenuous last-minute crisis on staff that already work with 100+ children.

    I worked at Boys & Girls Clubs

    Pros

    If you stay away from senior management, you can have an amazing experience being a positive role model for children. It can be invigorating and rewarding to make an impact on youth's daily lives.

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Not open to new ideas. Sense of secrecy and intimidation. No career advancement possibilities and no teamwork or cohesion. Turnover is extremely high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember why you are there, why your staff is there. Make your staff feel like you are part of the solution, not part of the problem. Listen to ideas.
