    I worked at Latin American Youth Center (LAYC) as a contractor (less than an year)


    Great mission and vision to help Latinos in the DMV succeed in the educational, social, mental, and health aspect of their lives. The company has a great website and reputation among DC's non-profit orgs.


    The organization has extremely/unusually high turnover rates. Employees are constantly and continuously being fired, transferred, or demoted/promoted. Once employed, there is literally NO professional on the job training. Employees, including all tiers of management, can be very cliquish especially so, it seems, if you are not Latino. The agency falls completely flat in terms of inter-agency communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer professional, structured job trainings for new employees in all positions. Offer a standard welcome orientation for new employees. Eliminate cliques in the workplace. Consider restructuring the ENTIRE organization in terms of communication. Try to lower the excessive employee turnover rates.
