Youth Villages
September 26, 2013

I have lead a group of volunteers supporting Youth Villages for the past eight years. We have adopted a cottage for an entire year coordinating monthly activities and mentoring with the kids along with celebrating birthdays and Holidays. I can honestly say this is one of best run non-profit organizations I've been associated with. All the Counselors are well trained, caring individuals who are stern but respected by the kids. Youth Villages is truely making a difference, changing the path of some, helping dysfunctional families learn new life skills and teaching the kids there are rules in life that must be followed. The staff at Youth Villages are to be commended for the great work they do. I hope my post will peak the interest of others to learn more about the work that is going on at Youth Villages for there is no other local organization that is doing what you're doing to help kids in our area who have been abandoned, abused or gotten into trouble like Youth Villages does..Our kids are our future, Youth Villages needs your donations and your time. Thank you Youth Villages for what you do.....You Rock!
