Starting as a young teen attending St. Ignatius College Prep I knew that I only wanted a career where I was really helping people in need and making a positive contribution to the community. After many years as a social worker and a DJ I found a perfect fit working with After School Matters at a Program Specialist and now as Program Manager. ASM provides programs for teens in Chicago to help them meet their educational and career goals. Our hands-on programing helps teens connect with their passion and builds confidence through project-based activities. We all know about the violence that continues to plague Chicago and our programs keep teens engaged in a safe space at the most crucial times after school and over the summer when so much of violence occurs. This is only my 2nd organized running event and I could not be more proud to be a part of Team After School Matters. Please consider making a donation of any size to help us maintain and expand our programming for Chicago teens.
