We Appreciate Our Specialists!

Dear Specialists:

As we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, it’s only fitting that we recognize how each of you inspire and connect youth to a future beyond imagination! You are the lifeblood of Youth Solutions and the Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates program.

In reflecting on the past year, we are enormously grateful for your unwavering efforts to stay connected to your young adults. On a daily basis, weekends and evenings included, you talked, met, texted, Facetimed or messaged. You have been a counselor, advisor, shoulder to lean on and caring adult. We know your heart and passion are with your youth and you regularly meet our young people where and when they are available.

JMG youth say it best: “Thank you to all the JMG students, specialists, managers, and leadership. You all make the impossible, possible" Kyra Gibson, Marquette-Alger Technical Middle College, Upper Peninsula Michigan Works!

“Thank you for all your help. I might have given up if it weren’t for all the help the JMG program has given me." Jalen Lewis, Quest High School, GST Michigan Works

Each of you provide support and foster a sense of belonging, which reignites passion in our youth. You help them understand their skills and introduce them to ALL the career opportunities available. You open their minds to possibilities beyond their imaginations.

Thank you for your unending dedication. We are honored to recognize you during Teacher Appreciation Week!


The Board and Staff of Youth Solutions
