In 1974 The Youth Council was started by local counselors to help greater Nashua families build the skills they need to be strong, effective parents, raising children and teens that make good decisions and stay on track. Today we provide the safety net of support the local community relies on for more than 700 families per year. Our children and teens come from all walks of life, with all income levels, family structures and stressors.
Our programs are creative, affordable and effective! Grants through the state, United Way, City of Nashua and private foundations, along with donations from the community, allow us to offer sliding scale fees for some services and keep costs low for others. We partner with many organizations, schools and police departments to be sure that area youth are benefiting from the best services possible.
We are proud to have been recognized for our commitment to excellence and look forward to the opportunity to serve local families.
Our team is comprised of caring, committed professionals with a long history of service at The Youth Council. Given our small size – 7 full-time staff – we purposefully foster a culture of mutual support to help maintain the energy and perspective necessary to serve children, teens and families effectively.

We are seeking licensed therapists that are NH insurance-eligible (LCMHC’s, LICSW’s, LMFT’s, MLADC’s) to join our clinical team on a per diem basis. You may choose as many or as few hours per week as you’d like.
Given that Nashua hosts a federally-funded mental health center, most of our clients are seeking brief intervention to help get back on track. Our children and teens struggle with grief, anxiety, depression, peer relationships, communication skills, substance misuse, life transitions, and the like. Some clients attend only a few sessions, while others maintain their connection for several months.
