WHAT IS THE YOC?

The YOC is a premier outpatient and residential treatment facility located in Muncie, Indiana which provides on-going programs and services to over two-thirds of Indiana counties. At the YOC, caring, trained, and educated staff members teach life skills to at-risk youth from across the state. Our uniqueness is our ability to service the most difficult youth with extreme behavioral and emotional challenges.

Teamwork is a must!

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.
