Volunteers of America, Utah provides a bridge to self-reliance and health for vulnerable individuals and populations who struggle with homelessness, addiction and mental illness in our Wasatch Front communities. Our Youth Resource Center is a refuge for youth ages 15-22 who have experienced extreme disconnect from positive adult role models and benefit greatly from the consistent support of healthy adults.
The Youth Resource Center's Facilities Coordinator ensures the safety, cleanliness, and functionality of the Youth Resource Center as well as agency vehicles based at this location. This is challenging but rewarding work at an agency where we are committed to making a difference serving Utah's most vulnerable population.
