I worked at YMCA part-time (More than a year)

Pros

willing to work with college students, if you need to change hours because of a class or need to change what days you can work its normally not a program

Cons

dealing with parents , dealing with melt downs with students, if a student a bad day in school they most likely will bring it into after care and it becomes your problem as well, rainy days ! the kids hated not going outside and are difficult to deal with on rainy days

Advice to Management

check in more with college students it can hard sometimes going to school and working with school age students
