Sports/Specialty Camp Director (Current Employee) –  Palo Alto, CA4 August 2012
I've managed and trained 30 staff working as the Sports and Specialty Camp Director. I have experience in developing schedules and curriculum for a wide variety of ages. Throughout my time at the Palo Alto YMCA I have been involved in practically every youth program that we offer. The most enjoyable part about working for the YMCA is the feeling that you are making a difference in your community. Although the pay is never equal to the work that we do for the community, to be surrounded by good people tends to make you a good person as well.
Pros
great cause
Cons
compensation, upper management
