    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Vellore

    I worked at Make A Difference part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Youth Oriented platform. Energetic young crowd full of ideas and energy. Met some really inspirational people at MAD. Had a great curriculum back in 2013 and 2014. Conducted some amazing activities from camps to fundraising to campaigns.

    Cons

    Constantly re-evaluating. Too many changes are made every year. Definitions, responsibilities and expectations for volunteers at different levels changes too often. The essence is lost in making things fancier.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Make A Difference part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Had really nice experiences interacting with kids and fellow volunteers. Got a chance to work on ground for helping underprivileged kids.

    Cons

    Nothing at all to be precise. Everything was organised really well. To list out cons, I would say unefficent utilization of funds can be considered one.

    I have been working at Make A Difference for more than a year

    Pros

    MAD is one of the best places to work at because it gives you a lot of exposure and in the process you really get to know yourself so much better. Spending time doing justice to the society gives a level of satisfaction and happiness. MAD gives a very good platform to develop communication skills, teaching skills and personality development.

    Cons

    I have never dealt with any problem with or in MAD. It has always been like my favourite place to be at.

    I worked at Make A Difference

    Pros

    1)The kids. They make your life filled with more joy. 2)The teaching to kids. Helps you learn about student psychology and understand how difficult it is to be a teacher.

    Cons

    1) More Talking. Less Action. People at MAD Coimbatore come to chill out with their friends, not to teach. 2) There will be a lot of city circles and centre circles- just for fun sake. Imagine the kids in shelter homes. 2 hours of class with them. 6-8 hours a week for chilling out and socialising with fellow volunteers 3) Partiality and Favoritism. They look down on volunteers who come from middle class. They think everyone who doesnt come in a car to teach classes are beneath them. 4) No procedure is ever followed. Lesson plans or session status or attendance is not taken properly. Classes get cancelled all the time. But if you miss a single class, all hell breaks loose. 5) Dream Camps are only for their favorite volunteers. Others should pay to get a seat. 6) They only want u for their CFR- that is to collect money from people for MAD. Other than that, an average volunteer wont even receive a proper certificate if his centre head decides not to.
