NYLC is proud to welcome two passionate new staff members to its team. Emily and Hannah are joining NYLC as Promise Fellows through the Minnesota Alliance with Youth, in partnership with AmeriCorps. NYLC is honored to continue a long tradition of partnership with these two great organizations.
Emily Uecker, the Youth Initiatives Promise Fellow, will work closely with our Youth Advisory Council, a national team of young servant-leaders that help shape NYLC’s programmatic and organizational vision. In step with this work, Emily will be working with the YAC to broaden Youth4Education to reach new audiences and to inspire youth-led work to advance education equity around the country. “I’m very excited to serve with such an amazing national organization. NYLC combines my passions for youth work, service, and social justice all into one. I’m excited to act on these passions and work with the YAC to advance #Youth4Ed.”
Hannah Reece, the Youth Coach Promise Fellow, will focus her work on supporting our District-wide Model, focusing on the effective implementation of service-learning best practices as they relate to student experiences. “My passion to ‘transform the education system’ has steadily grown through my direct service with youth. My work this year to solidify, define, and implement the District-wide Model allows me to put into practice my passion for educational transformation and my talents in synthesis and structure-building. I’m excited for the possibilities of new district partnerships.”
NYLC is thrilled to add Emily and Hannah to the team. Learn more about NYLC staff.
