You will be high disappointed
TREATMENT COORDINATOR (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INNovember 19, 2013
Pros: the children are wonderful!!!!
Cons: management, lack of flexibility to your schedule, high unmanageable case loads, delays in receiving travel reimbursement, management is inconsistent on expectations, low morale and a lack of professionalism.
National Youth Advocate Program is a disgrace to the child welfare system. The organization provides home-based services and foster care services that do not serve the best interest of the children. NYAP constantly violates state’s rules and regulations as it pertains to foster care. NYAP has several foster parents that have received multiple complaints – more... in regards to licensing, which make it difficult to maintain children in these homes. NYAP will make TCs have caseloads that are over capacity and will not compensate TCs for any overtime worked The contract between NYAP and DCS states that caseloads for therapeutic case managers should be no more than 11, and when I was employed there on TC had 17 children on her caseload at one time. I also personal received 11 new cases in a 45 day period that I also put me over the 11 limit. NYAP managers are non-sympathetic and non-supportive to the needs of their employees; especially single mothers. They also seldom show staff appreciate or respect. While I was employed there, I received several emails from NYAP’s Indy regional manager that were disrespectful and unprofessional. NYAP’s management lacks any ethics or morals and they treat children as if they are expendable. They will do ANYTHING to get a portion of the child’s per diem even if it’s not in the best interest of the child. In Addition NYAP's management lacks managerial skills; they make reactive decisions based on their emotions rather than logical decisions that will benefit the agency. If you want to work in the child welfare system it would behoove to work with ANY other agency other than NYAP – less

Pros: great benefits, flexible schedule

In order to get the best snapshot of working in child welfare, and being given the freedom and latitude to make a difference with underprivileged kids, NYAP is the place to work.

Great work location and near Route I57. Great locations to find food to eat. Sam Club and Walmart near by. Office supply stores also near by.
Clerical Specialist (Former Employee), Matteson, ILJuly 30, 2012
Management was only concerned about employees that had at least several years seniority with the agency. The co-workers were clickish and made it hard for new employees to become a part of the team. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping the clients reach their goals both parents and minors. What I learned was how to work at the private agency – more... level compared to the State of Illinois higher level of performance. – less

Great place to work except for the inadequate benefits
n/a (Current Employee), n/aNovember 22, 2011
Pros: great atmosphere, great cause, generally treats employees well
Cons: the healthcare benefits are bad
I love working here, and if you don't mind having a very high-deductible health insurance plan, I would highly recommend working here. But if you have health problems, think long and hard about it.
