    I worked at Northwest Youth Corps as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It teaches you how to be independent and snaps you into shape. This job pushes you. It's amazing, I loved it and I will work their again in the future.

    Cons

    Again this job pushes you, which is amazing and at the same time is horrible. Which makes it perfect, trying, and absolutely relentless.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is this, try to make it so the supervisors and yourselves get paid more than the children that their/you are trying/helping to work and become independent.

    I worked at Northwest Youth Corps as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The mission of the organization is what makes the long hours worth it. As an Americorps volunteer you are given an incredible amount of responsibility to run projects and develop skills. Staff are down to earth, fun-loving and passionate about serving youth.

    Cons

    Training can be minimal, must be self-directed.

    I worked at Northwest Youth Corps full-time

    Pros

    You work your butt off for meaningful work and if your heart is in it it doesn't even feel like a job

    Cons

    The pay is so low for the hours you put into it, but this isn't a career job nor a job for the money, and everyone knows that goingin

    Advice to Management

    Management rolls with the chaos the best way they can
