Community Projects Coordinator

Amanda is an AmeriCorps Community Projects Coordinator. She joined YouthBuild after earning her BA in History with minors in Secondary Education and International Studies from Arcadia University and completing a year of service with City Year Philly at Tanner G. Duckrey Elementary School. Her passion for educational equity and her desire to work in non-traditional educational spaces brought her to YouthBuild. What Amanda loves most about her position is having the opportunity to get to know and learn from students as they make a difference in not only their own lives, but in their communities through their commitment to service. When not at YB, she can probably be found studying maps to plan her next trip, watching some nerdy documentaries or political satire, or hanging out with friends.
