Youth In Need Named a 2023 “Top Workplace”

Youth In Need has been named as one of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Top Workplaces in the midsize company category. This is Youth In Need’s ninth time on the list since 2013! The Top Workplaces are based on employee feedback secured through third-party survey results. More than 240 Youth In Need employees completed the anonymous survey that assesses aspects of our culture, including appreciation, direction, meaningfulness, open-mindedness, innovation, cooperation and values. Based on the results, Youth In Need was one of only 179 companies who made the cut for 2023!
