Meet Faust and Caitlin!

Meet our two new Junior Program Assistants (JPA) Faust and Caitlin! 

The youth are broken down into smaller groups of 5-7 called “houses”. They are led by one adult (Head of House) and one Youth (Head of House) called a Junior Program Assistant (JPA). The adult leader and JPA work together as co-partners in their house, and they work with the other house JPAs for the whole SSYZ family. 

JPAs serve several key functions in the SSYZ. They are the Leaders of their house, which includes things such as assisting others in activities, ensuring they are working as a team, mediating conversations or issues that arise, and making sure their house atmosphere is a welcoming one. They are also the advocate for the youth in their house. They are learning to listen, gather information from their people, and express it as a collective to others. 

They are also working on being a larger scale voice for all the youth in the SSYZ and their neighborhood. More on that to come later!
