Programs: It serves youth ages 6–22, many of whom have cycled in and out of foster care and/or are involved in the juvenile justice system with a continuum of evidence-based in-home and residential programs.
These services are grounded in a proprietary approach called Evidentiary Family Restoration™, which has been shown to produce lasting results for young people with success rates twice that of traditional services at one-third of its cost.
Youth Villages sets young people on a path to healthy adulthood by boosting their academic achievement, helping them avoid criminal activity, and assisting them in securing employment.

Mission:
Youth Villages is a leading national nonprofit providing effective local solutions to help America’s most emotionally and behaviorally troubled youth and their families live successfully.
Results:
Youth Villages' continuum of care deploys over 18 evidence-based protocols to ensure high-quality programming for young people.

The organization's flagship intensive in-home model, called Intercept, works with troubled youth, both in and out of state custody, and their families to build healthy relationships, support and structure.

Compared with traditional out-of-home services alone, Intercept costs one-third as much and consistently generates a long-term success rate twice the national average (80 percent vs. 40 percent). Two years after completing Youth Villages' programs:

•83 percent of participants served were at home (not in the system).
•82 percent have had no trouble with the law.
•83 percent are either still in school, have graduated, or are earning their GED

Youth Villages is an amazing organization, and I am thankful I have had the opportunity to volunteer over the past year.
