“There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children.”
In the beginning, we asked ourselves, "Can we operate a successful business and still do good for society?" Our answer is a resounding, "Yes. We can do both." Our professional and community endeavors share a core conviction: investment in the well-being of families creates a better future for children.
Social entrepreneurism is the underpinning of our business model. At YoungWilliams, we are inspired to make a difference. We are committed to doing the right thing – in our business and in the world. Each year, our offices around the country participate in drives to gather food, winter coats, school supplies, holiday gifts, and other items that will benefit children and families. Many of our employees volunteer at local social services organizations, such as food banks, homeless shelters, and other charitable entities.
We offer opportunities and support for individual employees to serve on local, state, and national boards that promote parental responsibility, family well-being, professional training, and community partnerships.
YoungWilliams provides scholarships and internships to law students, and in collaboration with our government clients and local bar associations, we organize and present at Family Law Clinics and Continuing Legal Education seminars. As part of our focus on attracting new attorneys to the child support enforcement program, the company funds scholarships to law students in several states. We frequently offer summer internships to law students exploring careers in family law.
In all our child support offices, we provide a play area and reading corner replete with age appropriate books that children can take with them. We strive to create a family-friendly office environment, where families feel comfortable and welcome.
Through our work, innovations, volunteerism, collaboration, and community involvement, we hope to make the world a better place for one child, one family, and one community at a time.
