My experience with Youth Villages has been extremely challenging both personally professionally, but also rewarding.

Family Intervention Specialist (Current Employee)
Memphis, TN

I have been working at Youth Villages full-time for less than a year

ProsThe organization has a sincere interest in serving at-risk and families, providing the opportunity to build a purposeful career. There are tremendous training opportunities and position-specific perks as well as organizational inclusiveness and perks. Working for YV is like working with family.

ConsThe hours and schedule of ANY position can be extremely stressful and challenging. Support is available from peers and leadership, but there is a very high-level of stress to be considered based on the field itself.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
