If you could have dinner with 1 person who you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?

I would love to have a conversation with some of the major and early change-makers in the social enterprise field, such as Bill Drayton, the founder of Ashoka, a network of social entrepreneurs.

What motivates you to create social impact?

I believe that all people deserve the opportunity to realize their full potential. Whether it is with an individual, community, or enterprise, I am energized by being a part of the process of recognizing and achieving potential.

Host Site Overview

Year Up’s mission is to close the Opportunity Divide by providing urban young adults with the skills, experience, and support that will empower them to reach their potential through professional careers and higher education.

Host Site Project

Year Up has experienced rapid growth in its core programs as well as new partnership models, such as PTC. To support further growth and strengthen the students experience across these programs, the New Sector Fellow will support the National Program Team on identifying, refining, rolling out, and supporting implementation of programming standards across the Year Up sites through research, analysis, scenario development, drafting of standards and guidelines and staff communication and training. Further, the fellow will be integral in researching and bringing in external knowledge of program standards from other organizations to help support the work, as well as collaborate with others on determining the best place to capture the learning and documents that resulted from this process.
