When you’re fresh out of college, it can feel overwhelming to choose a career path and earn skills that you’ll be beholden to for your entire career. For students like Tricia Murphy who knew they wanted to work closely with children and families, the pressure to commit to a graduate-degree program before ever entering the workforce weighs even heavier. But upon finding Youth Villages and its YV360 program, Tricia realized she could work with kids and families, and even grow her career, before deciding to commit to a graduate degree. She shares the impact of internal upward mobility and a willingness to support career growth in her episode of Stronger Than You Think.
