Youth Villages is a nonprofit organization striving to help troubled youth and families live successfully. We are a team of more than 2,700 individuals who've come together across 11 states and the District of Columbia to change the landscape of child welfare and juvenile justice across the country. Our work involves providing an array of counseling and treatment services to youth with severe emotional and behavioral needs. Eighty-two percent of those who go through treatment are succeeding two years after leaving our program. These youth are living at home, remaining in school, and are not experiencing trouble with the law. We believe strongly in investing in and supporting our employees. We offer candidates opportunities to develop a career and be part of a positive change in our country's treatment of at-risk youth and families.
