Advice to Senior Management – Practice the YAP core values, listen to employees, don't ask for work without paying staff - every 15 minutes of pay adds up. Treat the staff with the respect and they will respect and value YAP.

“I would love my job more if aI got some paid time off....who works in mental health and doesnt get paid mental days?”
Pros – I love the kids. I love the fact that we make improvements in these childrens lives.
Cons – everytime we have a training instead of learning ways to improve our kiddos we get yelled at constantly for all the things that the tss's that are not doing their job do. Teach me something. Dont yell at me cause someone else isnt doing their job....
Advice to Senior Management – Turn over is not good for these children yet the turnover rate of tss's is constantly rising. I feel that if we were better paid and had paid days off u would get better performance and people would stay...
