City of Cottonwood

summer program

March 2016 • Cottonwood, AZ

What I liked

I love working with children! This program is always lots of fun and the kids are so amazing and smart.

What I wish was different

The organization, especially this summer, was very lacking. There was little protocol for employees and that often lead to confusion on what we should be doing when and even difficulty making sure we had all the kids with us which is obviously a problem. Often times even if an activity was on the schedule, we did not have the materials to actually do it so there was a significant amount of improvisation.


This sort of job is always surprisingly difficult and draining but also so so so rewarding. Get to know the kids and be there for them, you never know what a big impact you could have on thier lives.
