My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Teenforce, San Jose, CA, USA
TeenForce is an amazing group that changed my life by giving me the opportunity to work in a field that I'm interested in. My work experience was limited, but my interest wasn't lacking. A great thing about TeenForce is that they will give you an interview; a chance to make an impression is rare for teens without much work experience. I loved the idea of not having to apply everywhere that I could think of, following up constantly, and being discouraged whenever things didn't work out. As a TeenForce teen, I just had to call one number to reach out and get my name associated with a number of opportunities. This is a huge benefit for the large population of capable yet slightly hesitant teens like me. I let them know that I just wanted to work, whether it was in a yard or in an office. They came through and got me an amazing paid internship which has and will benefit me for years to come. For any teens, if you don't particularly enjoy (I don't know why you would) searching for "help wanted" and applying for jobs, TeenForce is the place for you. Of course it's always good to look on your own, but it's nice to know that there's someone helping you. And they are motivated to do so because they only get paid once you get paid, so there's nothing to lose really. For potential employers, just ask any of TeenForce's clients how their experience was. The company is adamant at producing an enjoyable experience for its clients by making sure that us employees are serious and ready to meet the demand of any job we are given the chance at. They wouldn't recommend you a teen for the job that they didn't feel was truly capable and best-suited to meet your needs. Another plus is that they do all the employee paperwork for you! So again, there is nothing to lose. For any job where you feel a teen would be best, TeenForce is the best place to find one.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Getting a job which I am so grateful for, which I would never have had access to without TeenForce.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Have more businesses look to TeenForce to find employees, because there are a lot of teens looking for work.
