John Horton

Why did you decide to work at Youth Villages?
— Youth Villages was just a natural fit for me. In my previous job, what I enjoyed most was working with the children and families at the children’s hospital.

What is appealing about doing this work in North Carolina?

— Because Youth Villages’ services in North Carolina are rapidly growing, there is an opportunity for support throughout the state. People want to support causes that make a difference in their community, and Youth Villages has been doing that for several years.

What do you like best about your job?
— I like being able to truly make a difference. Youth Villages and those individuals and organizations who choose to support us have one thing in common — we all care about helping children in need.

— Golf, snowboarding, playing guitar and soccer, solving the mysteries of Lost, and being a new dad.
