On December 7, 2018, YSB Executive Director, Robert T. Sherman, Jr. joined an elite group of individuals when he  was inducted into the Youth Intervention Hall of Fame.

Nominated for the Friends of Youth Leadership Award, Bob was chosen because he stood out as a leader in their field with a tireless commitment to youth.

Since 1999, the Youth Intervention Hall of Fame includes individuals that go above and beyond in their service to youth in need and recognizes them for their accomplishments. Over the years, only 81 individuals out of thousands of youth workers have achieved such status in the Youth Intervention field.

“Being inducted into the Hall of Fame is a big deal,” said Paul Meunier, the Executive Director of the Youth Intervention Programs Associations (YIPA). “We know that everyone who devotes their career to helping our most vulnerable youth is a superstar, but Hall of Fame members stand out as incredible people that we should all try to emulate.”

“I’m truly honored, and humbled, to receive this award” said Bob Sherman.  “Working with Paul Meunier, his staff and board has been delightful! We’re all dedicated to the same end: advocating for legislative support and providing professional training for social workers who help at-risk youth turn their lives around and become caring, successful adults. Many of these kids just need guidance and support through tough times, and like Youth Service Bureau, YIPA’s other member organizations provide that very well.”

Bob Sherman works for the Youth Service Bureau, Inc. (YSB) as the Executive Director.  YSB has been providing services since 1976 in Washington County and the surrounding communities.  YSB serves over 5,000 youth and their families every year through mental health counseling, diversion services, school based chemical health support, and education on topics like bullying, social media, and depression.  www.ysb.net   #betterchoicesbrighterfutures
