Julie Rewerts joined HYC as the original Case Manager in July 2011. She is trained in Motivational Interviewing, drug trends among teens and human trafficking. Additionally, she holds certificates in CPI Crisis Prevention and Intervention Training, Mental Health First Aid, Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST), and as a Trauma Support Specialist. As our original Case Manager, she has helped expand the schools we serve from one school district to 10. She finds satisfaction being out in the field working with both the teens and school staff at various schools every day. She especially loves touching the lives of the youth HYC serves and seeing the change that is possible. “To see them reach goals that they didn’t think were possible and then reach even further is both heartwarming and rewarding,” she says. She truly believes in her role as an advocate and understands the importance of achieving quality outcomes and the appropriate use of resources to empower HYC’s youth.
