Youth Villages
June 28, 2013

I have personally worked with Youth Villages for the past 9 years as a consultant and volunteer at multiple events. My own kids have volunteered and said it was personally satisfying. Since 1986 Youth Villages has been successful at helping children with emotional or behavior trouble. They current help over 20,000 children and families each year from more than 20 states and Washington, DC.
There employees are very dedicated, always friendly and a pleasure to help. It was amazing to hear that Youth Villages employees gave back 1.3 Million Dollars to the company. WOW.
Working with the children has always been such a blessing. Knowing that Youth Villages has a 86%+ success rate in helping kids and there family succeed in life makes anything I do worth the sacrifice.
I would love to see more businesses join forces to donate to Youth Villages so we can insure more kids have the opportunity to live a life free of emotional stress or behavior issues.
