He helped create the Youth Work Institute at the U of M, which reaches more than 4,000 youth workers annually, and oversaw the Minnesota 4-H program reaching 130,000 youth annually. Dr. Blyth's dedication to the field is extensive, as he serves on numerous committees, such as the Twin Cities Strive's Goal and Measures Design Team, the Youthprise Board, Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak's Youth Violence Prevention Executive Committee, St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman's Sprockets Leadership Team, and Greater Twin Cities United Way's Education Committee.
