Eva Carlston Academy, a residential treatment center for adolescent girls, understands that it is important for all youth to step away from self-motivated tendencies and serve others. They have found volunteering to be a vital aspect of their motivation system as the teens look for opportunities each day to be of service to another person. Additionally, youth in the program engage in larger, community-based volunteering each week. Equally important to Eva Carlston is having staff model appropriate behavior and, with volunteering, staff are encouraged to also volunteer outside of the workplace.
Staff at Eva Carlston Academy are involved in their community in a variety of ways. Of volunteering in his community, one staff member said, “I love the opportunity to make an impact, not only at work, but in my community as well. When I help other people and see the joy it brings to their life I am filled with a greater sense of purpose.” Eva Carlston has employees serving on the following boards:
Regional NATSAP Board
Salt Lake Business Advisory
Utah Museum of Contemporary Art
Additionally, staff and directors give their time to the following organizations:
Copper Moose Farms
Meals on Wheels
Tourette Syndrome Association Parent Advocate & Student Mentor
Boy Scouts of America
Congregation Kol Ami synagogue
St. Vincent de Paul Shelter
Kimball Arts Festival
Utah Film Commission
Utah Arts Festival
Through community involvement, staff and directors hope to instill the value of volunteerism in the youth with whom they work, and make their community a better place because of it.
