Martin believes that one of YMO’s greatest strengths is the ability to give young people the skills and opportunities necessary for a successful transition into adulthood. He hopes that YMO puts young adults in a position to make an impact in the real world, whether that be as members of a committee, fundraisers, public speakers, artists, volunteers, etc.  Martin acknowledges that young adults often feel weary of adult interference in youth-serving systems and believes in the power of “peer-delivered” services. He maintains that the most effective way to support the young adult population is for young people to reach out to and support each other.
