And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
To change the lives of our youth by providing preventative services, counseling and shelter to strengthen families and build stronger communities.
Youth Bridge is northern Arkansas' leading provider of comprehensive care to troubled teens and their families. We offer outpatient therapy and counseling, residential substance abuse treatment, emergency shelters, academic and social support, a therapeutic group home for teens involved in the juvenile justice system, and school-based services in collaboration with area school districts.
Each year, Youth Bridge serves mere than 4,000 teens and their families from a nine-county area. We encourage volunteers from clerical work to assistance with fundraising and event planning.
They made it really easy to get involved. Hours are very flexible and the work is very rewarding. I received my degree in Advertising and Public Relations so I looked to Youth Bridge to provide me with an opportunity to help out while developing my skills at the same time. They worked closely with me to figure out something that I could do and enjoy. This place does a lot of good in the community and it's worth checking out.
