Structured agency with friendly and enthusiastic staff
Homework Club Tutor (Volunteer) (Current Employee), Windsor, ONFebruary 22, 2014
Pros: schedule works with my school schedule, positive work environment, helpful staff
Cons: only one shift a week
Every Wednesday night I volunteer at the Children's Aid Society. For about an hour I help the child that I tutor with her homework and write in her agenda about her progress. For the last thirty minutes, the children have a snack and then play a game either as a group or with their tutor. I have learned different teaching methods while tutoring the – more... child, and re-directing strategies to get the child focused and on track in order to get her work done. There is always at least one manager there, supervising while I am there to help with attendance, prizes for homework completion, and for any questions we may have. My co-workers are very helpful with any questions that I may have and in working together to get the children focused. The hardest part of this job is hearing the struggles that the children have went through with their family. The most enjoyable part of the job is making the child smile or laugh, and helping them to understand their homework. – less

Tutor (Current Employee), Windsor, ONJanuary 14, 2013
I volunteer every Wednesday night, and tutor the same child each week. She typically brings in any homework she needs assistance with. If she does not provide the homework I have bought a math workbook for her to do while at the session. The hardest part is trying to get her to focus on tasks she considers boring. The most enjoyable part is seeing how – more... happy she gets when she understands something. – less

Facilitator (Current Employee), Bronx, NYSeptember 16, 2014
Pros: had the same days off as schools did
Cons: not many hours per week (15)
A typical day of work was exciting depending on what site you worked in. I learned how to compromise, how to be patient and how to communicate effectively from working in this company. Management had their days. Hardest part of the job was working through rough patches, especially when we were understaffed. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing – more... the impact you made on a kids life at the end of it all. – less

Great people to work with but can become overwhelming in regards to hours
FFT Therapist (Current Employee), Bronx, NYJuly 7, 2014
Pros: comp days, supervisor and co-workers
Cons: late hours, not very stable work schedule
The Children's Place is a great place to work at, the supervisors are flexible and allow space for supervision to be as beneficial as one needs it to be. A typical day at work during the school year is notes during the day and sessions at clients homes during the evenings. Sessions could be any where from 3 to 7pm. Hardest part of my job is knowing – more... to leave the work at home. It becomes difficult to not take work home but when work is not taken home feels like there isn't enough time in the day to finish it at work (more specifically notes). Most enjoyable part of the job is being able to use comp time instead of vacation and personal days and also co-workers and supervisor, who help makes strenuos days seem less tense and who are there to lend an ear when things get tough. – less

fun workplace
co worker (Former Employee), bronx new yorkJune 17, 2014
My typical would be that coming in at work at around 9 am wait for the children to have their breakfast.
After they had their breakfast we go upstairs to our classroom until it time for our activity.
Everyday we had different activity to do for the children
Example going to a museum ,amusement park etc.
The hardest part of the job for me was trying – more... to communicate with the children or get them to listen without being rude.
My coworkers were extremely friendly and cool to be around with , they were nice to the children and love the job.
The most enjoyable part of this job was traveling and visiting different places and learning with the children – less

Afterschool Facilitator (Current Employee), P.S 5 Ellen Lurie SchoolMay 8, 2014
As a facilitator a typical day consists of working with the children to complete homework assignments. As well as preparing academic learning activities for the children. Working with children is something I am very passionate about. I also like to focus my attention on the children to seem to be struggling the most whether it be schoolwork or other – more... issues. No day is the same working with children which is the most enjoyable part to me. – less
