Program Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYJune 8, 2017
There was no typical days at this job. I learned crisis intervention, problem solving and team work. The hardest part of the job was not able to help a client.

Very difficult place to stay
Youth Counselor (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYMay 6, 2017
The work environment is very stressful. The job is hard enough without having tension and negativity with coworkers and leadership. There isn't a lot of room for advancement. The leadership is very unprofessional. The training doesn't prepare you for what's to come. You're working 8 1/2 - 10 1/2 hours a day and you aren't guaranteed breaks. The hardest part of the job is checking your emotions at the door. The most enjoyable part of the job is the connection with the girls. Decide for yourself if you're willing to give up your weekends and lose emotional connection with people.
Cons
No breaks, Work 2 days on weekends

Difficult, but Important
Youth Counselor (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYFebruary 4, 2017
Working here is tough. Each day presents something new. You always have to be on your toes. The environment is fast paced and often stressful. Staff shortages are a constant problem. If you are not sympathetic to those you watch over this is NOT the job for you. These kids need love, mercy, and patience.... Something they have never been given consistently. Some days you'll regret coming, but others you'll remember why you got in this field. The compensation is low, but improves with time. Finding a balance between what happens at work and down time outside of work is essential. It is all too easy to mix the two and become consumed by the negative aspects. I think what this organization does is important and special!
Pros
Bonuses, Shifts always available, Morale
Cons
Low compensation, Staff Shortages, Long Shifts can be stressful

Stressful
Senior Youth Counselor (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYFebruary 2, 2017
Very demanding and always short staffed. Unprofessional management and co-works. The clients they tend to deal with can have very extreme personality changes. One minute you're laughing with a client and the next minute you're getting attacked. Their safe crisis management is very hard on your body, especially your knees and back.
Pros
Working with the clients and seeing that you're helping them
Cons
No breaks

Not for everyone
Youth Counselor (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYJanuary 30, 2017
This is not an easy job to do. Every day is unpredictable. There are some bright spots, such as seeing a client improve in her treatment or make new connections, but there are plenty of difficult and dangerous situations that you find yourself in. For the emotional and physical labor this job requires, the compensation is not enough. You learn invaluable lessons working with these kids, but you may be traumatized yourself in the end. It is definitely not for the faint of heart.

Average work experience
Youth Counselor (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYDecember 29, 2016
This organization is geared toward services of youth in the residential foster care setting. The work environment is satisfactory along with the supervisor and management team. This organization does fulfill it's mission and is effective in achieving the goals established.

A typical day at work includes the direct supervision of youth. I learned that there are many troubled youth who are in need of mental health services and appropriate foster care settings. The hardest part of the job was having to use physical interventions when clients were temporarily out of control of their behaviors.

Run
Youth Counselor (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYDecember 12, 2016
The place has a great mission behind it, but seriously run the other way. Most of the kiddos aren't a problem, but like with all teenagers they have good and bad days. The biggest issue is the staff. Keep in mind this isn't on all shifts. This place is very cliquely. After being here for a short amount of time, you realize the closeness and teamwork they preach in orientation is non existent. You have to watch your back every second around the people you work with, no matter what dorm. Most of the time you wont stay in your home dorm you will just be moved all around and then yelled at for not having a relationship with the kiddos in the dorm. Depending on who your supervisors are, how well your going to do in this company. While yes, they do have their strong points, but in my eyes the negative out weighs the good here.
Pros
Great mission
Cons
Staff groups, no trust

Youth Counselor (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYNovember 6, 2016
Decent organization to work for, but compensation is not comparable to experiences you will gain and workload. If you enjoy helping and aren't concerned with pay, this is an excellent organization to work for.

Stop!!! Don't do it!
Youth Counselor (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYOctober 17, 2016
Don't do this to yourself. This is not a good place to work at all. Nothing they do here is for the good of the young ladies. You will live in fear of either getting fired or reported to cps for the smallest of things.
Pros
Experience to use somewhere else
Cons
Management, everything is based on whether they like you

Health Services Associate (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYSeptember 12, 2016
This is a very demanding job that requires an individual to be aware of when they need to take self time. I believe that is on of the hardest part of the job. But the satisfaction from helping children that are in need is well worth it.

Nice people, terrible leadership
Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYJanuary 28, 2016
There is no typical day at work. Everyday is different and everyday is just as crazy as the day before. While working in the cottages with the girls is not terrible most days, the higher one moves up in the company, the more drama and unnecessary political nonsense emerges. The leadership is often rude and is completely out of touch with the day-to-day happenings on main campus, and try to overcompensate with food and bonuses. There have been significant efforts to make this better, but there has been little improvement thus far. I'm convinced that it will get better in time, but the right solution just hasn't been found yet.

Youth Counselor (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYNovember 21, 2015
No one in this place shows any loyalty. Your co workers will act friendly until you do something they don't like. You're encouraged to be professionally courageous and push you're coworkers forward but once you do, you are berated and reprimanded. The upper management is out of touch too. They expect you to come in to work and show a happy face and be happy with the little pay and treatment you get from your coworkers, and the kids. I would not recommend this agency to anyone.
