Pros

Helps you to help others. Turns lives around and builds a family of friends.

Cons

Can become a hide out for those not willing to live in the world.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider running a working house outside of the program, where residents can live and work in the world outside of Teen Challenge. That way they can practice being a light in a dark world, with the added help of being a part of the program and sharing their transitional issues.

    Pros

    Seeing the girls grow and change was encouraging and awesome. Spending the time mentoring them and teaching them also helped me grow.

    Cons

    The leadership needed some growth. There were numerous areas where there was a double-standard and it was obvious to the teens we worked with, it left support staff unable to fully enforce some rules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to the handbook! And pray so much, you're constantly under attack.

    Pros

    It is a great opportunity to work with people in need. It is a good venue to learn time management and teamwork. They are good about providing support for staff during trying personal experiences. Time off is available for extenuating circumstances, and staff receive a 1-2 week vacation each year depending on seniority. Training takes place continuously as needed for all employees. Teen Challenge makes sure that all staff participate in continuing education and personal development in all areas.

    Cons

    The organization is usually stretched to the limit like most non-profits. Leadership is strong, and individuals are prepared for advancement through continuing education and personal growth workshops and seminars. Compensation is on a par with other non-profits doing similar work.
