    Former Employee - Volunteer 

    I worked at Make A Difference

    Pros

    - Great core team, dedicated to the cause - Very organised and professionally managed

    Cons

    - Fellows (Volunteer heads, typically inexperienced undergrads in universities) were quite uncouth and lacked adequate oversight from core team leading to poor people management.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure interpersonal skills evaluated during recruitment include basic courteous behavior towards volunteers (and human beings in general!)

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    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...

    Advice to Management

    1) Look for sincere volunteers, instead of people who just want to show-off to the world. 2) Respect every volunteer and dont discriminate 3) If this organisation wants to make a difference, reduce all the Gala and concentrate on the kids.
