    • Youth Villages Residential Treatment programs serve children with emotional and behavioral problems. Our residential campuses provide the setting for an intensive treatment program that combines the unique balance of structure and freedom. This enables children and their families to identify, understand and cope with their individual needs and develop the skills necessary to succeed in less restrictive settings.
    • Locations for the program include Memphis, TN OR Linden, TN.

     The Position:

    • Youth Counselors (also called Teacher Counselors) are a part of the team providing mental health services between the ages of 11 and 18. Counselors in the program will be placed at one of four residential treatment programs or group homes in Memphis, TN or at our Deer Valley campus in Linden, TN.  
    • While in our Residential Treatment programs, children receive intensive counseling designed to help them learn to live successfully at home. They attend our state-approved campus schools.
    • The Counselors work with a small group of children on various life skills and training.
    • Youth Counselors wear many hats and are very flexible as well as creative.

    Additional Information:

    • The TC (Teacher Counselor) schedule runs either Sun-Wed or Wed-Sat
    • Three weekdays: (M-W or W-F) 2:00pm-10:30pm
    • One weekend day: 6:30am-10:30p
    • On a few campuses, TCs spend the night once or twice a week on the campus and have additional responsibility for waking the residents and directing them with their morning routine. This schedule also provides counselors with a three day weekend. (Please note: Counselors do not live on the campuses and are responsible for securing their own residencies.) Each campus differs on their schedule structure and rotations and can be discussed further with a specific hiring manager.
