a typical day at work
Volunteer Mentor (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON24 February 2019
I would walk in once school ended and take the attendance right away to see how many kids we would be working with on that day, we would then distribute the snack for the day accordingly. Homework was what was done immediately after snack to make sure that the kids wouldn't fall behind on their school responsibilities. On average about 4-5 kids would need help on a daily basis, you would have to help while watching the other kids to make sure nothing bad is happening. After homework, the kids would either play in the gym or outside so I would need to supervise them and lead any games or activities being played. The average workload daily is very demanding but still fun and teaches very essential and beneficial work skills.
Pros
Work experience, communication skills, organisational skills, teaches patience and discipline
Cons
inconsistent work load

Program Staff (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON17 October 2018
Their is no such thing as a fair advancement here. They'll hire new people for hire positions before they think to hire staff with seniority. Management is rude and lacks actual communication skills; asking a question and getting a timely response is nonexistent here. Speaks to the staff as if you were their child. Over priced program when they quality isn’t even the same as it was in previous years. Completely disorganized. Expects you to be a CYW and a SSW while paying you minimum wage.
Pros
Easy to balance school and this job
Cons
Rude management, hard to advance, disorganized, lack of communication, low pay.
