While working with Craigwood Youth Services in the 1990's, I found it to be a very rewarding experience, one that I was sorry to leave but one that I couldn't afford to stay at.
The environment and location plus the possibilities and creativeness was an amazing experience, one that I would strongly consider returning to if the right opportunity presented itself.
The team (managment and font-line) were great, hard working and dedicated to the improvement of the youth, and themselves. It was a learning culture that I enjoyed. Of course the days were full of work, with funding difficulties, many jobs required skill sets that would not normally have to be done in larger agencies.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the kids, the people and the location (fresh air, to breathe, to relax)
