Youth Counselor (Current Employee), Louisville, KYAugust 25, 2013
Pros: benefits, team work, overtime
Cons: daily risk of possible injury, dangerous situations managing a childs behavior
My journey at Maryhurst has shown me the aftermath of abuse. All of the girls have suffered serious trauma leading them to be physically aggressive and self injurious. I've grown to be more patient, empathic and self aware working with the girls. They observe everything we say and do and my goal is to say and do all I can to make their lives better. – more... I can honestly say this is the best position I've ever held and I am blessed to be able to impact their lives in a positive way. – less

Residential Facilitiy for at Risk Youth
Temp Worker (Current Employee), Louisville, KYJuly 9, 2012
Pros: free outings with kids, eat free with kids
Cons: no benefits for temp employees
I really have passion for my job duties and responsibilities. I enjoy working with adolescents, and teaching them day-to-day skills. The hardest part of my job is leaving the kids after a long work day. Most of the kids that I work for are depending firmly on staff to supply their basic needs, due to a lack of this in their personal lifes. Building – more... trust relationships with these kids, by constantly being consistant in a structured environment can be a struggle. But the joy comes when I have seen small progress, from any kid. due to the healthy relationships that I build. – less

This is the place where you can see your work paying off when a child in state's custody gets to go back to their family or foster care.
Youth Counselor (Former Employee), Louisville, KYJune 26, 2012
Pros: success stories.
Cons: the girls that didn't make it
Working at Maryhurst was by far the most challenging and stressful job I have ever had. I learned about some of the most depressing cases of abuse and neglect which explained why so many of these girls were runaways. Once I was able to gain their trust, these girls went from aggressive and angry to children that resorted to remedial behavior because – more... that was all they knew. We worked together putting in place development plans where we could track their behaviors and work on new coping skills. I learned verbal de-escalation skills that are very useful in sales today. These girls became angry just like accounts can! Although this job involved physical restraints and dangerous situations, the rewards were well worth it. – less

Hi this position sounds wonderful, I was wondering how much it pays and how long the shifts are. Also what are some activities that are done with the teens? It seems like it's a very rewarding job.
