Employees’ Words

Our organization is not just about the people we serve but about the individuals who make up our wonderful team as well. Here is what a few of our employees have said about their experience working with Community Action:

“I have learned so much from working here at Community Action.  Each position I have held has taught me something. I take pride in where I work and I think I learn more from our families than I teach them.   It is a very humbling and a very rewarding job and I love that I am able to help others in need.  Who wouldn’t want to work for Community Action?”

As a family advocate, I get to work one-on-one with families every day. I feel supported and appreciated by my peers and supervisors, which is what makes it a true joy to go to work every day.”
-Alex Mylius, Family Advocate for Head Start Program
  

I have been a lead teacher in Early Head Start toddler and infant classrooms as well as a GED instructor for the adult education program. I am now a center director for Early Head Start. As a teacher, I enjoyed the independence, creativity and initiative that Community Action afforded me in the classroom as well as the support that I received through mentor relationships and training. As a Center Director, I enjoy collaborating with parents to facilitate and improve our program, developing my own leadership skills, and being part of a group of professional educators.”
