Company Description
Volunteer Youth Academy is a 8-bed level II residential treatment center for adolescent males between ages 12-17 who suffer with behavioral, emotional or mental health issues. By removing adolescents from their current environment full of gang affiliations, drugs, substance abuse, and trouble with the law, they can heal in a safe, structured, therapeutic environment supervised by professionals close to their homes. While the program is designed to be 90 days, the typical stay is for four to six months depending on circumstances. We ensure that each child's physical, social, emotional, educational, and permanency needs are met.

Founded in 2005, the company is accredited by The Council of Accreditation (COA). Our facility is contracted by the Tennessee Department of Childrens Services and licensed by the State of Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.
