Youth Villages stories
Employee Spotlight: Nicole Amenta
Nicole Amenta is originally from Connecticut. As a specialist of social services, she found her way to Bloomington and set sights on pursuing the ideal career. After searching through multiple service providers, she came in contact with Youth Villages. What attracted her to the organization is its unique approach to care and felt that everyone she came in contact with was warm and welcoming. Nicole has been with the organization in Bloomington for a year and a half now and says she loves it.
While working with YVIntercept, she has found that she finally does meaningful work that truly yields actual change and visual advances. This program specializes in diverting youth from out-of-home placements and successfully reuniting children with their families after they have been in out-of-home placements.
Family intervention specialists, like Nicole, become deeply involved with families to get to the root of the problems they experience.
Youth Villages believes strongly in investing in and supporting its employees, offering opportunities to develop a career and be a part of a positive change in the support of at-risk youth and families.
People succeed at Youth Villages when they are looking for more than a job and are passionate about social services and dedicated to helping at-risk youth and families. Additional benefits include relocation assistance and/or a sign-on payment offered in select locations. A Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in social services is required; licensure or license-eligibility is a plus.
Youth Villages proudly serves Indianapolis, Madison, Jasper, Bloomington, Columbus, Jeffersonville and Evansville.
