    Pros

    Wonderful mission, fun environment, room for growth in company

    Cons

    The pay is very low compared to other nonprofits. There's very high turnover and management needs changing, its becoming an older organization and having difficulty appealing to a younger generation of volunteers and donors.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees more, better compensation, and needing new innovative ways to engage youth and young adults.
