Youth Counselor Cover Letter Sample

Updated on February 20, 2016

Switch on your inner creative writer and build a youth counsellor cover letter that will blow the reader away. This is not a choice – it is a necessity! Whatever you write in a cover letter, it has to be significant in terms of the information that it provides to the hiring authority.

Commonplace cover letters never make good impressions as they tend to elicit the fact that you paid either very little or no attention to the task. If you didn’t bother much with this, you will certainly not be able to provide much to the company if hired. So you are probably not such a great hiring option.

Dear Mr. Fisher:

Realizing that teenage is the critical time, I have devoted myself to working as a youth counselor. With over 5 years of experience in interacting with children and young adults, and successfully resolving their emotional and physical problems.

I am highly familiar with the complications of age and social expectations at this stage. As a former volunteer for the Runaway Child, I can safely claim that I am not just competent at detecting problem areas, but can also promptly and aptly determine ways of addressing them.

Over the years, I have come across many challenges that tested both my physical and mental ability to handle emotionally stimulating problems such as substance abuse and drug addiction. This experience has taught me never to take anything for granted, resulting in my well-honed ability to dig deep inside to determine root causes of issues troubling our youth.

As an individual who can effectively create and implement counseling plans to meet youngsters’ individual physical and emotional needs, I believe I will be a perfect addition to Four Oaks’ team. To elaborate further, I would like to meet with in an interview. I can be contacted at (000) 666-4141.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
