I worked at Boys & Girls Clubs part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Working with the kids, lots of training held throughout the year, teacher liason helped me find new and creative ways to reach the students, and the teacher liason also helped me perfect my classroom management techniques, the crew I worked with were great

Cons

starting pay could be better, but it is non-profit.

Advice to Management

provide better support for new program leaders who don't have experience working with children, i was lucky to have a teacher liason who was so involved, otherwise i would not have been as successful. when i first started, and was having trouble, my site coordinator (who left soon after) literally told me "Just do what you think is right!", when asked for advice.
