Youth for Tomorrow is a nationally accredited 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that serves boys, girls, and families of all ages whose lives are in crisis. The organization offers a continuum of services as an alternative to the nation’s fragmented and overburdened child and family care systems. Youth for Tomorrow is unique to the Northern Virginia region and delivers the right care at the right time to children and families in need of urgent care.

The programs and services that Youth for Tomorrow provides all seek to help these children and families in crisis. This includes children with serious emotional or behavioral problems. There are Treatment Group Homes for boys and girls, including services to pregnant teens and domestic girls who have been sexually exploited or trafficked. There are crisis intervention counseling services for all ages as well as diagnostic and assessment services. While these services are provided on campus outside of the children’s homes, family reunification is always the ultimate goal. Other services help families stay together through training, counseling, and other measures. Therapeutic day treatment is available as part of their outpatient services and there are intensive in-home services as well. They also have a therapeutic mentoring program.

All counselors report to a program director at Youth for Tomorrow. The company has an empathetic culture, not only for its residents but also for its employees. Everyone is focused on providing the best care for these children, but they also support and encourage each other. Each of these counseling positions has a salary range of $65,000-75,000 annually, and benefits are provided.
