I worked at Youth Villages (More than a year)

Pros

My experiences with Youth Villages have been extremely challenging both personally, professionally but also rewarding.
The daily interactions with working with children will keep you young.

Cons

The hours and schedule of ANY position can be extremely stressful. The sixteen hour shifts on the weekend can really burn you out.

Advice to Management

Allow more breaks the job is very stressful.

    I worked at Youth Villages full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great organization, sincere interest in helping at-risk youth and families

    Cons

    Very demanding work - hours and hours of documentation outside of hours required for each client; many meetings - some beneficial, some not so much, scheduled every week, interfering with ability to meet demands of client sessions. Most employees lack experience and necessary training - approach seems more of a "fake it til you make it" philosophy, at least with my supervisor.
