Many businesses and public agencies rushed to give jobs to teens from areas hardest hit by the Los Angeles riots, but the Stuart M. Ketchum Downtown YMCA took another approach. Building on existing activities, the downtown "Y" designed a program to provide teens with both job opportunities and the attitudes, self-confidence, and skills to help them hold onto new jobs and succeed down the road. "Our point of departure is always people--understanding people and giving them the kind of experience they need, meeting them where they are," explains Robert A. Wilkins, associate executive director of community programs.

The problem with Robert Wilkins is that there is only one of him. And that the work he does cannot easily be described or duplicated. At a loss to understand exactly who Wilkins is, and what he does as executive director of the Stuart M. Ketchum-Downtown YMCA, even his colleagues tend to sputter: "a visionary," "an actualizer," "the most ethical" or "most spiritual" or "most profoundly moral" leader this city has ever seen. Inevitably, a part of the Wilkins myth follows.
