Stepping Stones Museum for Children
Senior Manager of Youth Programs
Norwalk, CT
I manage a youth program at a children's museum called Youth Enrichment at Stepping Stones or YES2. YES2 is an enrichment program for diverse youth ages 11-18, from areas all around southern Connecticut and eastern New York. My goal is to continue to make the program stronger and more enriching for those youth.

My goal with this program is for every youth involved with it to look back upon high school graduation and know that their lives have been improved or enriched in some way by the YES2 program. Recent graduates of the program created their own alumni group.

In addition to this program, I coordinate the interns that provide support to the museum throughout the year. I am the point person for high schools and colleges, as well as the individual students, and am a presence from initial contact to post-experience evaluation. I have also renamed and refined the Apprentice Program, which provides internship opportunities to youth and adults with special needs.

I'm also proud to head up the Muttigrees program at the museum. The Muttigrees Curriculum is a socio-emotional track for kids in grades pre-K through 12 that also teaches empathy with shelter/rescue dogs as a focus. The curriculum is a project developed by North Shore Animal League America and Yale University, among others. In 2015, the museum be named as a National Muttigrees Demonstration Site. As of 2019, nine YES2 participants have been named National Muttigrees Ambassadors.
