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. Following the completion of a recent randomized clinical trial, we are in the process of expanding our transitional living program (LifeSet) in North Carolina. The clinical trial showed positive effects across several points of measurement and we are looking for mission-driven individuals to help us implement it at a greater scale.
Our LifeSet Transitional Living Specialists provide their 16-22 year old clients with the knowledge to utilize all available community resources. These specialists are able to help young adults become self-sufficient by assisting them in locating and learning how to use community resources such as housing, employment and education by forming therapeutic relationships with program participants, families, friends, and other key community stakeholders.
