Working in the field of youth care workers is stressful. Though Youth Impact offers a competitive salary in the field, it is not a suitable wage to sustain oneself. The job itself is hazardous in that residents may become escalated, which may cause danger to themselves or others. Workers often become stressed, and tend to think about work even while at home. Youth Impact attempts to rectify this by offering a free counselling session each year and a wellness benefit, but the hours of the job make it difficult to pursue stress-relieving activities. This is a meaningful job, and those who are dedicated to making a difference will like the home environment offered by the company. Those who are using this job as a stepping stone towards another career path, though, may not find the job pleasant.
