Mary Anne has over 20 years of experience working in the non-profit arena in the areas of positive youth development, creative arts programs, and project and volunteer management. She is a certified Coach from New York University, and a Founding Member of the Harvard Institute of Coaching Professional Association and is also a national trainer and facilitator.
“I spent many years running youth programs in the South Bronx and saw the need for role models, advocates, and mentors for young people. All youth need opportunity, access, and support and an intergenerational mentoring program allows some of the greatest wisdom keepers to share their talents, life skills, and stories with young people.”
