On April 16, 2019, DJJ hosted its Annual Volunteer Banquet to honor those who give selflessly of their time and energy to serve our youth. This year's DJJ Volunteer of the Year is Jason Boulware, who volunteers at IYC Chicago. Jason is a professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has built a partnership for his students to work with youth at IYC Chicago. This includes a semester-long class where youth write, direct, act in, shoot, and edit short films. Additionally, Jason has developed a course for DJJ youth to learn photography. Jason cares about all his students, including DJJ youth, and invests in them as a teacher and mentor. Congratulations, Jason!
