Outdoor Youth Counselor at Youth Villages

Program Overview

Youth Villagesí Residential Treatment programs serve children with emotional and behavioral problems. Our residential campuses provide the setting for an intensive treatment program that combines the unique balance of structure and freedom. This enables children and their families to identify, understand and cope with their individual needs and develop the skills necessary to succeed in less restrictive settings.
Deer Valley, our residential treatment facility in Linden, TN, is situated on 1,029 acres of wooded and gently rolling hills. A flowing stream helps create a picturesque setting for the nature paths, which wind throughout the campus.

Position Overview

Youth Counselors (also called Teacher Counselors) are a part of the team providing mental health services to boys between the ages of 11 and 18. Boys live in residential cabins that are perched on a hillside not far from the dining/activities center and counseling services building.
While at Deer Valley, children receive intensive counseling designed to help them learn to live successfully at home. They attend our state-approved campus school. The Counselors work with a small group of children on various life skills and training.
A Teacher Counselor wears many hats and is very flexible as well as creative.
Outdoor Youth Counselors work a 4 day shift every week.
