How do thank someone who goes so above and beyond your expectations, all the time? Well, we will try here.

Jill Wroblewski joined the Youth Farm board in 2010 after attending our gala event that year and the commitment she has shown since day one is second to none! Jill is the chair of our development committee, a long time Youth Farm supporter, the organizer of many a Youth Farm events, and someone who is always willing to utilize her social networks to find new Youth Farm supporters. Now if one points out to Jill all the amazing work she has done and continues to do for Youth Farm, she usually brushes it off, humbly stating that, “Well, I do love a good party.”, but we all know her commitment to Youth Farm runs deep. Jill is the first to commit to come visit programs and see the impact of the work, and when she gets around our Youth Farmers, she asks sincere questions and truly listens to what they have to say. Even though her work schedule has her traveling throughout the country, she is always open to finding time for Youth Farm staff or other volunteers to make sure our work keeps moving forward. Most importantly though, in my mind, Jill is someone who will ask the hard questions, push the organization to be the best it can be, then be the first one to commit to the work that needs to be done to make that vision a reality. She brings an excitement and passion for our work to every aspect of her involvement, from fun farm dinner events, to a regular board or committee meetings.

All of us at Youth Farm cannot thank Jill Wroblewski enough for all she has done and continues to do for our organization. We are lucky to have you involved. Thank You Jill!
