Under Martin’s innovative leadership, Youth Era has established services across the nation. He believes that one of Youth Era’s greatest strengths is the ability to give youth opportunities necessary for a successful transition into adulthood. He maintains that the most effective way to support the young adult population is for young adults to reach out to and support each other. Martin currently sits on the national board of CAFETY and Reachout.com’s youth board. In 2010, Martin won the Mental Health Award of Excellence from AMH and the OCHH Ma Curtis Award. Now, he continues to work towards improving services and systems that support positive youth development.
