Ashley Doiron, an Attleboro resident and Assistant House Manager at Justice Resource Institute’s Rediscovery Group Home in Waltham, recently completed a year-long leadership development program to enhance her leadership skills and heighten her role within the organization.
Justice Resource Institute (JRI), a large human service provider, offers many programs, including Rediscovery, which serves unaccompanied, homeless high school students and youth who are aging out of foster care, in order to ensure their successful transition to adulthood.
Doiron was part of a group of employees who were chosen to participate in the leadership program, JRI Futures, which focused on developing each participant’s leadership qualities to enable their success as future leaders at JRI.
“When selecting candidates for JRI Futures, we try to choose employees who demonstrate energy, ambition and success on a daily basis,” said Danielle Ferrier, Executive Director of Rediscovery at Justice Resource Institute and Futures Leader for the agency. “This year’s class was especially dynamic. We met once a month, to discuss various topics related to JRI, training each participant on the resources and knowledge they need to excel in their respective roles here.”
