A very interesting learning experience
Co-op Placement (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 March 2019
Overall the experience was very interesting, worked with some great people and I learned a lot from it. However the staff were kind of not good at their jobs. Most of them were ageist and a bit rude.
Pros
You learning something new everyday
Cons
most of the higher up staff don't know how to do their jobs properly

A Good Place To Be
Manager, Youth Services (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 March 2018
Awesome culture, doing everything we can for the community. Couldn't ask for better management, as most of the management team have been here for over 10 years. Our supervisors give us almost complete autonomy over our programs, and very rarely micromanage. The salaries are not super competitive, but that is the way it is with non-profit organizations. If you're looking for a big pay cheque, this isn't the place for you. If you're looking to make an impact in the community, this IS the place for you.
Pros
Flexible work schedule, lots of work perks
Cons
Not great wages

Great place to work
Youth Worker (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 August 2017
A typical day for me was going to the Dupont Satellite location to do the Rogers Raising the Grade Homework help with the at risk children around the community. It was nice to engage with parents on the development of their children. The place is well organized as their are many programs running and all the staff are polite and helpful.
Pros
working with a range of people
Cons
none

Amazing co-workers, intense staff training, friendly environment
Aquatic Leader, Instructor, Lifeguard (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON1 April 2016
Typical Day at work:

A lesson plan for every class checked by either the Aquatic Leader or manger. Depending on the time of the session, a confirmation of stickers and badges for complete/incomplete students. Calling out Swim Kids/Preschool levels along with attendance. Trying to find a good location for your students to learn how to swim, the pool is fairly small so this is not very well organized. First come, first serve. However, depending on class size you can convince someone to swap lanes/section with you. Weekend swimmers tend to be more calm and easier to teach than weekday.Pool is VERY warm, around 90 fahrenheit.

Lunch break: not many places close by to eat, bring your own lunch but cannot eat in the office, so limited space. Lunch breaks are around 30 minutes.

Lifeguarding: Typically calm, rotations are enjoyable.

Camp groups: VERY LARGE. Hard to manage and typically not well organized.

Staff Training:

Not like the usual skills performed in NLS course. Mostly endurance and team work building. Unique drills. Trainings can last between a few hours to 3 full days. Paid.

Co-workers:

AMAZING group of people. Immediately make you feel welcomed. Sometimes go on trips together when off-duty.

Change rooms:

Not very clean. No staff specific change rooms so a lot of the workers will change in the storage room.

Accommodations:

Friendly staff will support you and take your shifts if need be, company is very understanding. Will take the time to work out a specific work schedule to fit your personal needs.
Pros
Friendly Staff, HOT pool, flexible work hours
Cons
Staff training is physically demanding, lesson plans are a MUST, just above minimum wage, lack of organization, small pool - around 18m length, dirty change rooms

My Experience
Site Leader (Current Employee) –  Leader, SK6 December 2015
It is a great experience but it can be better in so many ways. I enjoyed my experience with them all in all though. Once working there you get attached to the children and staff however the pay and the hours does not suffice due to the amount of effort is being put forth into programs. Great job for students in high school and want to gain that experience of working with children.
Pros
The Children & Stagg
Cons
