Chris Jimmy

Youth Consultant

The funny one…


His Story…

Chris went into foster care when he was 11 years old. He continued in foster care until reaching extended foster care and aging out at 21 years old. Since then, he’s been working on living life in the adult world and overcoming its many challenges.


His Qualifications…

Chris has been working with youth since he was 16 years old, first as a youth group leader, becoming a transitions coach with Family Alternatives, and then as a camp counselor under the same fostering agency.

He has always felt a connection with young people, seeing a bit of himself in them. Potential for any kind of positive impact he may have on young people is more than enough to keep working towards bettering their lives.


His Role…

Chris' primary role on the P4P team has been facilitating trainings and utilizing social media as a strategy for recruitment of additional youth consultants. He is also the team’s comedian, and has given us a fair share of laughs over the years - something we really value about him.

Chris has been a part of our presentation efforts through Tomorrow’s Leaders Today in Duluth, our Guardian ad Litem statewide training, the Hennepin County Roundtable Discussion, and P4P’s Listening Session with Child Welfare professionals.


His Life…

Chris has always been very interested in performing arts, joining both band and choir in high school, while going onto Minnesota State University (MSU) Mankato under a Theatre major, keeping ties with the college’s band and choir programs.

But these days, Chris can be found practicing karate, acting, and spending time with Gabriel, his son, while planning for another baby on the way!
