Partner Engagement Manager

Julie, who supports 100Kin10 partners to meet their commitments with excellence, came to 100Kin10 from Teach For America, where she was on the New Site Development team. At Teach For America, Julie worked on a portfolio of potential new sites to devise and execute strategies for corps member placement, development, and community engagement, resulting in the launch of new sites including Buffalo and Idaho. Julie holds an MSc in Human Rights from the London School of Economics and a BA in History and International Relations with a minor in German from Boston University.

When you tell college students and post-grads about 100Kin10, what aspect of the movement resonates most strongly with them?
College students and grads are really amazed by the extent, and diversity, of the 100Kin10 network of partner organizations. When they hear about partners coming from fields they’ve studied, they’re able to connect with 100Kin10 on a personal level that really resonates with them. I think it’s this story of diverse partners coming together in unique ways to solve a big, sticky challenge that excites them.
