Hear from our 2022 Youth of the Year

Every year, three outstanding youth from our premier program, Jobs for Michigan's Graduates (JMG), are recognized for their leadership skills at our annual Career Development Conference (CDC). Two current program participants and one alumni receive this annual recognition for their success and accomplishments in the program and beyond. All three are outstanding assets to the Youth Solutions community.
