Southern Maine Youth Transition Network

JMG is a founding member of the Southern Maine Youth Transition Network (SMYTN), led by the Muskie Institute for Public Service and one of 21 national Aspen Institute Opportunity Youth Incentive Fund sites, and one of only four rural sites. SMYTN seeks to build the conditions for collective impact so youth have the relationships, skills, and opportunities needed for success as they transition into adulthood.

Building on the momentum and relationships of prior coalitions in Cumberland and York Counties, the JMG SMYTN Opportunity Broker works with youth and service providers, seeking to remove barriers and create opportunities to connect Maine’s 16 – 24 year olds to education and careers.
