Overall good place if you have a good director to support your initiatives. Sometimes stretches too thin trying too many projects at once making staff run under stress.

Nice place to work at.
Social Service Worker - Placement (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON6 September 2013
It was enjoyable and grateful when working at this agency. During the first half year, I prepare food, activities, homework group and special event for our after-school program - The Nook program. I have learned a lot of strategy when working with individual that requires patience, understanding, communication and interaction. Through everyday interaction with children, we build bonds in each other and slowly become friends. It's always good to have a friend listen and play with and that helps children learn and grow up. Discipline is always difficult but we get through it by appropriately communicate and take appreciation to one another. The program is well-managed. Co-workers are always be there on time, supervisor would assign different roles to employees and placement students for every day task. Under the supervision, all co-workers are very well mannered, decent and friendly. The hardest part of work is that during Halloween season, we were short of people and had to multitask between sales and school teacher. I enjoyed working with children and watch them grow.
Pros
Nice environment, good supervisor
Cons
Long hours
