Professional Development

One unique characteristic of Youth Villages is our strong emphasis on professional development, an attribute that is considered rare among non-profit organizations, and social services in particular.

We develop our leaders from within. Your supervisors have previously done your job and, if you have the right skills and ambition, your opportunities can be endless.

Youth Villages employees grow through initial and ongoing on-the-job training, advanced, knowledge-based technology and numerous leadership and skills training opportunities. We have entire departments dedicated to both performance improvement and leadership development throughout the organization.

Often individuals have to look outside their organization to find ways to advance their career or experience professional growth. At Youth Villages, you never have to leave the organization to experience new challenges and achieve professional growth and career advancement.

Individuals can gain experience in an array of programs and locations.

As Youth Villages grows we invite our existing staff to grow with us, which means as we move into new areas or begin new programs, our existing team members are the first to be considered for opportunities.
