WHY DO WE SHOW EXPIRED LISTINGS?

Do you and your spouse desire to make a profound difference in the world through

hands-on work with children? Interested in being trained in research-supported

techniques for helping youth achieve success? Seeking professional growth for a

career in social work or family counseling? Enjoy being part of a team and greater

organization that prides itself on exceptional care, services, and a distinguished

success rate?

 

Utah Youth Village is looking for caring, enthusiastic, and self-motivated couples to

be the primary live-in caretakers and treatment practitioners for up to six children,

ages 5-13.

 

The youth in our homes display behaviors consistent with major depressive

disorders, oppositional defiance disorder, developmental delays and other

emotionally disruptive conditions. Such behaviors often prevent youth from

functioning as a part of a family unit, leaving them at risk for missing out on healthy

family life. In our care, the youth work to develop impulse control, emotional control,

sustainable relationships, social skills, and more. Whenever possible, their parents

are involved in their treatment.

 

In this pair-position, you would serve as the primary members of a caring team,

including a few support staff, a home therapist, and an experienced home

consultant, which provides the youth with crucial treatment without sacrificing a

sense of home. Through your example, these youth can learn both what healthy

 

family living looks like and how to participate in it. Playing your part in healing and

elevating the lives of these youth will prepare them to be healthy members of their

own families, carrying on what they have learned. This is why our founder believed

that when you “help one child,” you “help generations to come.”
