Youth Leader Spotlight: Jocelyn Hernandez


Each month we will be recognizing a youth leader in the field of motor vehicle and community safety. We're proud to begin this series with our very own Youth Adviser, Jocelyn Hernandez. 

IN HER OWN WORDSI'm currently in my third year at Johnson & Wales working on my Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice. I want to be a law enforcement officer once I graduate. Currently I am the Youth Advisor for the Sexual Violence Prevention unit at the Colorado Department of Public Health and for the Tony Grampsas Youth Services program at the Colorado Department of Human Services. In my position I have over 90 grantees total that I visit to provide a youth perspective. I go though their quarterly reports and give back feedback on what they're doing great, and what they can improve on. In this position I have also been able to create a Positive Youth Development (PYD) tool, give PYD trainings, participate in grants, and be a part of forums to better the relationship between young people and police officers in the Denver Metro area.
