Workplace culture and subculture in a residential faith based youth program
Workplace culture and subculture in a residential faith based youth program: A culture is a common belief or a certain way of conduct within a specific group (Aho, J.2002). Within a larger group there could also be a smaller group this is what is referred to a subculture. These common beliefs and conduct affect how each individual in that group performs their duties assigned. These beliefs might have either a positive or a negative impact in the organization at large. These beliefs are passed from one generation to another and thus it becomes part and parcel of the organization.

Among the group of the custodians there also exist some groups, this is based on education backgrounds, religion and other factors (Fisher, R.2005). For example there are those custodians who are graduates and they interact more and better with students, since they are able to adapt even to the language used by this students. Religion would also influence how the custodians would handle students, for instance those who are so religious would sympathize with students even when they have wronged.
