Over 25 Years of History...Countless Lives Changed.

If we can help save a child, then why couldn’t that child save the family, the neighborhood, the community, the world.

More than a beautiful 75 acre campus, and beyond an accredited program or diplomas on office walls, the YOC is about people helping people. Not just in small ways, but in life changing ways.

At the YOC everyone brings their own talents and gifts to the table, whether it’s a winning smile, broad shoulders, strong backbone, helping hands or a heart for kids.

If we can help save a child, then why couldn’t that child save the family, the neighborhood, the community, the world.

We Are Family

Our Staff. Our Culture.

It’s often said that it takes a “special” person to work at the Youth Opportunity Center. To a certain extent, that’s true, but what does it mean exactly? It means that working at the YOC requires one to be dedicated, caring, cool under pressure, uncommonly patient, and, above all, passionate about helping young people.

The culture of the YOC is one of our most important assets and one of the most distinguishing characteristics of our organization.  When you’re an employee of the YOC, you’re part of a family. As with most families, the YOC team knows how important it is to “play” together. We enjoy a healthy sense of humor, recognizing great work through fun events, and embrace the successes of our employees, and most important, our clients.

In sum, the staff at the YOC understands how important family, caring, and giving back to others can be.
