As the founder of EJHFutures, LLC and a consultant, I, Michael Hill Jr. (he, him, his) seek to share my personal and professional experiences in order to empower community members, educators, practitioners, and most importantly the next generation. EJHFutures' work is provided through various approaches, some of which include participatory training workshops, facilitated discussions, collaborative planning/envisioning, and much more. As the founder, it is my goal to always strive for collaboration, sustainability, and community healing.
I am fortunate enough to hold an MSW from the University of Vermont (UVM) and even more so as of right now, I am the Substance Misuse Prevention Specialist at the Center for Health and Well being within UVM. Prior to this role, I held a variety of other roles all of which were connected directly to serving youth and young adults. From being an AmeriCorps member and co-leading a youth-led community beautification program to being the Student Assistant Program Counselor within the Burlington School District. Although my professional settings may have varied my passion and goal has never faltered. The goal has always been to empower the youth and young adults I worked with by sharing and relinquishing the power I hold as an adult, asking the same of the structures I worked within and assisting with the healing of the communities I was a part of.
Through another lens my various roles have endowed me with an interdisciplinary lens and a multitude of professional experience; restorative-transformative practices, trauma-informed practices, and much more. EJHFutures, LLC is a combination of my personal and professional experiences embodied into a vision for transformative change. From being a child of the foster care system to becoming a trained social worker with community-based, clinical, and educational-based understanding. As a consultant and collaborator, I am incorporating lived and learned experiences into the partnerships I make with stakeholders.
