Job Description

Company Overview



Youth Villages has been a national leader in the adoption and implementation of research-based treatment philosophies in the field of children's mental and behavioral health. Our commitment to helping troubled children and their families find success spans 30+ years and includes a comprehensive array of programs and services.



If you are looking for a positive career move where you are meeting the challenges of life and striving to make a positive difference, then Youth Villages is the place for you. We are looking for people with a strong sense of purpose and focus to continually build confidence in yourself and our organization.


Program Overview



Youth Villages’ Continuum program will provide an array of intensive community-based, wraparound services designed to divert at-risk youth from out-of-home placements whenever possible. The primary goal of our Continuum is to maintain youth within their home and school, support families/caregivers, and help ensure maximum safety for the youth, family, and community. Youth Villages views the children and families we serve as the experts on their own lives; therefore, all of our continuum services are family-driven, youth-guided, and strength-based. This level of family involvement leads to increased family engagement; family engagement leads to improving the quality of treatment; and treatment quality leads to consistently high outcomes.

Work to help youth develop:
