Job Description:

Youth In Need

Accounts Payable Associate

Because every child deserves a future...

Youth In Need has been serving the greater St. Louis area since 1974 when volunteers reached out to the agency's first client. A teenage runaway, who left her home after another beating, was picked up on the streets and taken to the local jail with adult criminals. Troubled by the community's response to runaway and homeless teens, volunteers changed the way these teens were treated by opening Youth In Need's Emergency Shelter.

Today, more than 400 full- and part-time staff serve more than 8,000 of the area's most vulnerable children, teens, and families at nearly 100 locations in six counties in eastern Missouri.

Mission: To build on the strengths of children, youth, and families so they find safety, hope, and success in life.

Vision: Equitable opportunities so children, youth and families in our region can thrive.
