2022 Exemplary Youth of the Year


This year we received 13 Youth of the Year nominations and every one of these young adults embodies the Youth Solutions values of leadership, collaboration and a solutions-focused mindset. They’ve pushed through tough times and stayed focused on their goals. The committee had a very hard time selecting the Youth of the Year winners, as they all truly exemplify what it means to be a part of the JMG family. We are excited to highlight them individually throughout the month on our social media channels: LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Follow our new Youth Solutions Twitter and Facebook pages as well!
