Horrible
Assistant Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Jackson, TNDecember 23, 2016
Working with these people they never cared for the children. It seem to be a game to them, to see who could be more popular instead of trying to reach a child and make them better over all .

Opportunity to provide positive mentoring to the youth
Assistant Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Waverly, TNDecember 22, 2014
The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the young men assigned to the facility. Getting to know most of them on a personal basis and being a mentor to them.

A chance to help kids with issues, but also very stressful
In November 2012 the assistant team lead (Former Employee) –  Waverly,TennesseeMay 20, 2014
I loved dealing with the kids, but the longer I worked there the more unbalanced my life became. Overtime was forced, and my home life was not good in this time frame of working at NTYA.
Pros
Making a difference

Overtime

Hard Environment with little support
Youth Care Worker (Former Employee) –  Waverly, TNAugust 5, 2013
This job was hard. I would go in at 2 pm and work all day with teenage boys that have behavioral problems. I would work in the dorms, outside, and in the cafe. The entire time that I am responsible for six- twelve students that I have to maintain fifteen minute checks on.I then would be on a mandatory overtime list which would put me working till 8 am. This would be five times a week. There is two weeks of training provided but it doesn't go with what my responsibility. The co-workers were also very stressed and overworked.
Pros
Good Pay
Cons
Mandatory Overtime
