Pros

The children and families that are served.

    I have been working at Boys & Girls Village full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working with kids with histories of abuse,neglect and trauma. Teaching kids life skills and coping mechanism. Meeting and teaching some really great kids.

    Cons

    Overall the agency is great. The shelter programs need help in reference to management. The turnover rate is ridiculous. Staff get burnt out an unsupported by some of the management . Unrealistic expectations people don't get their days off, always getting mandated and some people are getting spoken to unprofessionally.

    Advice to Management

    The program has a lot of potential but there needs to be more put in place as far as training for management. In addition both programs run at the shelter should be reviewed and restructured. The basis of programs are good but I believe need to be reviewed.
