The Youth Development Peer Network would like to introduce you to its first staff... 

Jason Wyman has been in the field of youth development for over 15 years.  He started by supporting a youth philanthropy program in Minneapolis Unified School District and worked his way up to become the Educational Program Director at the OMI/Excelsior Beacon Center where he brought school, youth, and community together to address the academic, civic, and mental health needs of the student population.  From there he launched into supporting the next generation of youth workers by creating trainings, resources, and networking opportunities through Beacon Academy, the Afterschool Corps, and the YDPN.  He worked as the Director of School-Community Relations at Excelsior Middle School and directed the Change! Program, the community engagement program at EMS.  Jason has been involved with the YDPN since 2003, and he is excited to be the first staff of the YDPN.  When he is not advocating for youth and families, Jason enjoys cooking, reading, and hanging out with his husband.
