Supporting Youth

Building skills within our future generations


Seeds of Change hires young adults between the ages of 16 and 24 to work with us part time. We tend to look for people without much job experience who want to learn how to get and keep a job, and learn a little extra about how to be an adult. Even though we are a program of ACMHS, employees do not need to be clients or meet any special qualifications. Seeds of Change is not a treatment program or a traditional employer; we are a community of people who support each other and share knowledge to help each other succeed.

Extra Benefits for Seeds Employees


Youth receive on-the-job training, but also auxiliary training in other important areas, including: housing, higher education, future planning, money management, and much more!


Youth are encouraged to keep coming to Seeds of Change after their employment ends, to continue receiving support or to share their experiences and mentor others in the program.


Program staff are knowledgeable about local resources and can assist youth in getting connected with financial, educational, employment, parenting, and housing supports, among others.


Youth have the option to enroll in ACMHS services, through which they can receive formal case management, skill development, and clinical therapy outside of working hours.
