Our Staff – Director of Youth Programming

amanda@casasanjose.org

is our Director of Youth Services. She taught for several years in South America and California. She led teen dating violence prevention trainings with United Way of SWPA. Inspired by the potential of the youth from PEP (Prison Education Project), Amanda decided to pursue a master’s degree in Social Work with a focus on Community Organizing and Social Action.

Amanda loves learning about and celebrating cultures. She had the privilege of living in South America for 6 years and calling Uruguay a second home. With Uruguayan youth, they made a radio program and wrote and performed a  play.
