Question 4 of 25
How would you rate your communication skills?
User-Submitted Answers
I would rate my communication skills as very good. Open and clear communication is paramount for planning and implementing programming, especially with youth that face barriers such as mental illness.
I would honestly say overall it's an 8.5.. I have to work on how work on not using recreational slang when dealing with different groups. Although, my presentation style makes me unique I've got to work on differentiating between my coaching/recreational language and my board room language... It's something that I feel most recreational professionals deal with at some point in their career.
I would rate my communication skills a 10 out of 10 as I can effectively communicate through emails, face to face, and on the phone as I always receive the best outcome for me and the other party, for whom I am conversing with.
Question 5 of 25
What is your greatest personality asset working with kids?
User-Submitted Answers
I am kind, outgoing and patient.
My ability to be compassionate. Raising three boys and working with youth on a regular, I understand that children today are facing trials that we didn't have to think about growing up. It's definitely a different generation.
I love seeing the smiles on my residents faces that I will be working with on a daily basis, when they are so engaged and pure enjoyment they are experiencing when engaging in my programs that I deliver.

About Recreation Workers

August 18th, 2017

As participation in organized recreational activities grows, recreation workers will be needed to plan, organize, and direct these activities in local playgrounds and recreation areas, parks, community and senior centers, nursing homes and other senior housing, camps, and tourist attractions. These workers lead groups in activities such as arts and crafts, sports, performing arts, camping, and other special interests. They make sure that participants abide by the rules of the camps and recreational facilities and that safety practices are adhered to so that no one gets injured. Recreation workers also are found in some businesses or business groups, where they direct leisure activities for employees, such as softball or bowling, and organize sports leagues.
