Boys and Girls Club
Phone: (978) 667-2193
Description: Looking after groups of ten to twenty children at a time between the ages of about six to ten years old during the club’s summer activities program. My responsibilities included creating activities, chaperoning field trips, and ensuring the constant safety of the children in my group. At times this required a great deal of patience, as I had to deal with many finicky kids who were unwilling to follow club rules. These children eventually learned to listen because I established myself as someone who was looking out for their safety without treating them like animals being herded into cages at the zoo. I found that communication with the most hyperactive kids is possible if you are stern but show them the same respect you would expect from them.
