    I worked at YouthBuild Philadelphia Charter School

    Pros

    Students and staff at YouthBuild Philly enjoy a transformational family like atmosphere. Everyone in the building is pushed to be their best and get involved within that community. Staff are inspired by students and visa-versa. This place is full of love and creativity. Everyone who works here is proud of what they do to make a difference in the lives of their students.

    Cons

    This place will constantly challenge and push staff to be better at their jobs (which i think is good, but dont expect to come here and chill). Work life balance can be difficult because you're dealing with young people who need a lot of support, so you have to know how to set boundaries fr yourself.

    Advice to Management

    If possible, management should consider how they might provide more opportunities for upward movement within the organization.
