    Pros

    So much positive energy from the staff! Great strength in leadership and is truly a team environment with everyone working together. The kids are wonderful and even if you are having a bad day, you walk into the club and it all changes.

    Cons

    Pay could be better, but it is a non profit. Enjoyment outweighs the pay!
