Jasmine Jones serves as Youth Engagement Coordinator for the partnership. She facilitates the activities of the United Youth Leadership Council (UYLC), a group of young leaders who advise the partnership on strategies related to the re-engagement of opportunity youth. She also nurtures their leadership skills and builds capacity among the council members to run their own meetings, organize events, activities and advocacy work.
Before joining the C2C team, Jasmine served as leadership specialist and career readiness counselor for opportunity youth between the ages of 16-24. Jasmine’s passion for working with opportunity youth stems from her own personal experience of being a first-generation college student and the challenges she faced while learning to navigate and address childhood trauma.
Jasmine earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Sociology from the University of Arizona and anticipates starting her Masters in 2020.
