New Poll: Summer off day

With graduations done and the temperatures rising, we must be entering summer. For youth workers this means the busiest 3 months of the year. But this busyness got me thinking, do most youth workers still take an off day during the summer. Thus, that is the newest poll question.

During the summer, do you still take an off day during the week?

  • yes, my normal day
  • yes, varies from week to week
  • yes, when I'm not on a trip
  • no, no time

I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on a summer work schedule.


  1. So tough to take a day off in the summer... I live in a resort community, so it is our busy season. I work like 80 hours a week

  2. do you notice a difference between the weeks you take a day off and when you don't? or maybe a better question for a "resort community" (and your line of work) is when you do take a day off, is it really a day off or do you still do work?
