    I worked at Girls Inc part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The organization itself has heart and very admirable goals. Training and general course structure is very well organized and based in actual research. The people who work there are genuine and really seem to believe in the work they do.

    Cons

    Lovely ideas, poor execution. The materials simply are not age-specific enough to be accurately and effectively taught. Although this is partly due to specific schools, teachers and volunteers are thrown into a classroom setting with a binder and little guidance.

    I have been working at Girls Inc as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Working with young women to better themselves and teaching them life skills, history, current events, self reliance, etc.

    Cons

    I volunteered for a very disorganized chapter in Smyrna, GA. I felt like there was very loose structure and we did not help the girls as much as we could have.

    I worked at Girls Inc full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very rewarding job working as an after school teacher with girl elementary aged girls, very empowering working with women, great training, non-profit has high standards for their employees so you are always challenged intellectually with also the freedom to be creative (if you are responsible for designing curriculum, I don't know about the other positions), a great place to work!

    Cons

    There is are a lot of internal politics involved with working for the organization, which I think is true with many non-profits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Carefully listen to feedback.

    I have been working at Girls Inc full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Direct impact on lives of individuals. Colleagues are like-minded, positive, and dedicated. The curriculum written at the national level is based on research and is timely.

    Cons

    Some teens are difficult to work with. Sometimes programming is driven by grant requirements or mandates from National office, preventing us from adapting to local needs.Theres a fair amount of turnover, which affects the continuity of relationships with partner sites and results in loss of experienced instructors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Directors need more contact with programs Need to visit sites to understand training needs of instructors.
