Jessica Dutille ’04 is the executive director of the Pemi Youth Center (PYC) in Plymouth, New Hampshire. The PYC is a nonprofit organization that serves as an afterschool destination for youth aged 10-17.
Dutille is passionate about supporting young community members and “empowering them into [honing] their unique abilities.” One of the ways she accomplishes this is through her involvement in the PYC girls empowerment group, SELF (Support, Empowerment, Love and Freedom), and through the organization she co-founded with classmate Laura Brusseau ’04, the Faith, Hope and Love Foundation.
Outside of her work at the PYC, Dutille is an adjunct professor in Plymouth State’s College of Business Administration. “I absolutely love teaching at PSU and having the opportunity to give back to the University that gave so much to me,” she says.
Dutille successfully balances her career with a family of three young children, whom she raises with her husband, Bryan.
