Youth Worker Resources
You are always there for Indiana YOUTH. We are always there for YOU.
At IYI, we could not do what we do without the competent, compassionate and caring individuals that make up the state’s many youth-serving organizations. To you, this is more than a job; it’s a calling. You are more than a worker. You’re an advocate. A mentor. A champion. We see how hard you work, and how much you care, and that is why we want to be here… for you.
Our Mission: to improve the lives of all Indiana children by strengthening and connecting the people, organizations, and communities that are focused on kids and youth.
