Backpack Heroes!

For the 11th consecutive year, the JDJ/Maestro teams in Boston and New York participated in the Youth Villages Backpack Heroes back-to-school drive. To help ensure a successful start to the school year, team members donated funds and sponsored individual students. Backpacks fully stocked with school supplies were carefully selected based on the child’s age and grade, as well as their preferred color, theme, or character. This is one of our favorite annual events because it’s an opportunity to give back and help children succeed. Maestro team members in our Stamford, CT; Bryn Mawr, PA; and Salt Lake City, UT offices are holding similar charitable events to support their respective communities.

Youth Villages is a non-profit organization that provides help to children and young adults who face a wide range of emotional, mental and behavioral problems. They strive to find solutions using proven treatment models that strengthen the child’s family and support systems and dramatically improve their long-term success.

We appreciate our team’s continued generosity, and we wish all of the students a fun and enriching school year.
