Utah Youth Village

The Utah Youth Village has been helping improve the lives of troubled families and children since 1969 after Lila Bjorklund, Utah Youth Village's founder, noticed the lack of resources available to girl's in difficult family circumstances in Utah. Since then, their programs have expanded to helping not only troubled youth of all genders, but to also help educate trouble families before the children would need to leave the home.  They are one of only 26 organizations in the U.S. and Canada to use the revolutionary Teaching-Family Model which focuses on positive reinforcement while teaching kids new skills. The Utah Youth Village helps teach children and families how to be successful at home, at school, at work, and in their lives.
