Youth Advisory Council


The Youth Advisory Council is a group of emerging leaders who dedicate their time, talents, networks, and resources to raise awareness and support for the work and mission of Youth Solutions. The role of a Youth Advisory Council member carries with it the responsibility to serve as a committed supporter and thoughtful advocate for Youth Solutions.


Kaytlin DeLong

Through the Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates program, I was able to gain valuable life experiences that I otherwise would not have had. JMG allowed me to meet amazing people that pushed me to get involved and to be successful. I became part of the council with the hope that I can show other youth that there is an organization out there that will help you succeed in life.


Alivia Gonzales

I am a member of the Youth Advisory Council because I really want to get this program to as many youth as possible. This is a great opportunity for me to support others, help them make connections and accomplish their goals the way that JMG helped me. If it was not for JMG, I don’t think I could see myself in my current career and I want to provide that same opportunity for other Michigan youth.


Mani Mesh

Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates is a great program and thanks to JMG, I believe there is always a way to make things even better. I joined the Youth Advisory Council because I want to continue to improve the program and to help young people in Michigan remove barriers and learn skills that will help them be successful in their lives beyond high school.


Natasha Rzanca

I believe that JMG is the reason I have become who I am today. I joined the council to share the knowledge that I have learned in the program with others and to give all the young people around the state of Michigan access to this program.


Hannah Wyman

While I was going through Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates, I discovered my inner strength and developed faith in myself that I can achieve anything I set my mind to. JMG encouraged me to break out of my shell, set goals, and ultimately achieve them. I joined the Youth Advisory Council to provide the same experience to other young people in Michigan and to help them grow.
