Howard Wykes

Designee/Deputy Compact Administrator, Arizona

Howard Wykes began his career in the juvenile justice field in 2001, working as a youth correctional officer for the Arizona Department of Juvenile Corrections. He has always enjoyed working with juveniles and felt this was a way for him to provide wisdom that could lead to opportunities for the juveniles. In 2004, Howard was promoted to Parole Officer and got the opportunity to have a more direct impact on the juveniles in the system. This was also his first exposure to ICJ as a supervising field officer. In 2014, Howard was promoted to Parole Supervisor which enabled him the opportunity to have a greater reach on the number of juveniles he was coming into contact with. He has since transitioned from field supervision of juveniles to mentoring those doing the field supervision of ICJ youth. This offered a chance to share his experience and lessons learned from his time in the field. In 2019, Howard was promoted into an administrative position including taking over as the Deputy Compact Administrator for the Arizona ICJ office. He attended his first ABM that year in Indianapolis, Indiana, where he loved meeting other ICJ practitioners from around the country. Howard got further involved with ICJ by serving on an Ad Hoc committee, the Training Committee, Technology Committee, and Rules Committee. In 2022, Howard was appointed the Arizona ICJ Full Time Designee and was elected as the Western Region Rep at the 2022 ABM in Vermont.
