Horribly Managed and employees undervalued
Outdoor Educator and Safety Officer (Former Employee) –  Shelburne, ON29 July 2019
PRI does not value their employees input or insight and seems to only care about those in their employment that happen to have Psychology degrees/doctorates. As a woods staff you are responsible for the lives of 6-8 youths who either do not want to be there, are suffering from withdrawls/suicidal thoughts, or both and when you make a suggestion or decision based on what you see while you are dealing with these kids and the situation that is at hand you will be unsupported by their office staff and or told to do something that is not feasible given the location.
Pros
you get to work outside
Cons
everything else.

Love PRI, but not a sustainable career
Outdoor Leadership Field Instructor/ RYC Support (Former Employee) –  Shelburne, ON4 May 2019
I have worked at PRI for over a year and love it there. The students are challenging but rewarding to work with. It takes a little while to get used to the PRI community, but once you understand the system, even behaviour management becomes routine. Nevertheless, PRI has work benefits and an amazing kitchen staff that provides for the community. Management and staff are all amazing and super easy to talk to; always willing to take the time to help others, and the workplace culture is supportive of all.
Pros
free meals, some benefits
Cons
long days, stressful students
