Marilyn Buhlmann is the first Restorative Justice volunteer to be honored in Youth Services Hall of Fame. Inducted last month, Marilyn is recognized for her 22 years of service as a Diversion Board member. "I love the act of giving, being able to share myself and my resources with this wonderful community that I have made my home for the past 50 years," she said. Recognized by staff as a "natural" at this work, she is described as an unusually compassionate and effective volunteer.
Any time of year your donations matter! Any time of year there are young people in crisis who are turning to Youth Services. Any time of year even a modest contribution can go a long way with a community-based nonprofit like Youth Services. We parlay your gift into more services for young people and families. Give because you can and it'll make you feel good. Give to honor a friend or in memory of a loved one lost. If you're having a birthday or anniversary and don't need more gifts, suggest your friends, family or colleagues make a donation to Youth Services in your honor. No matter what your reason, Youth Services counts on your generosity!
Workforce Development Expands Using Mentoring Model
“Build trust first and skills second,” is a key concept behind Youth Services’ approach to workforce development efforts in Windham County communities in the coming months. Our programs will offer a spectrum of employment services with a low barrier to entry. Paid young adults (ages 18-24) will be mentored in a cohort model in all aspects of screen printing business. Youth ages 12-17 will receive one-on-one mentoring.
