Judy Hermann has worked in youth justice services for over 25 years. After graduating from Centennial College's Correctional Worker Program in 1991, she began her career with Operation Springboard as a residential front-line counselor, senior counselor (primary worker) and assistant supervisor in various open custody and open detention facilities.
Before leaving Springboard in 2000, Judy was instrumental in implementing the Alternatives Project at 311 Jarvis Street youth court, known today as YCAPP.
Judy joined Encourage Youth Corporation in 2000 and ran the Aftercare Support Program for youth being released from Project Turnaround until its closure in 2004.
During this time, Judy was also working on her bachelor's degree in Psychology at York University and was working as a part-time instructor and field placement supervisor at Centennial College. Today she is also working in completing her Master's in Criminology.
In 2005, Judy was hired as a full-time professor in the Correctional Worker Program and once again took the lead in implementing a newly reinvented program which was branded as the Community and Justice Services Program.
In 2006, Judy became, and remains to this day, the program's coordinator for the Community and Justice Services Program at Centennial College.
