JACQUELINE ALVAREZ

PROGRAM ASSOCIATE

I was born and raised in Southwest Detroit, and I am deeply privileged to work for a nonprofit that serves that very same community I grew up in. I graduated from the #1 second to none Cass Technical High School and earned a B.A. from the University of Michigan in 2016 #GoBlue! As a Program Associate with Life Directions I implement and develop our core programs, coordinate youth-led activities, and continuously work on program expansion. I love my work as it allows me to give back to my community and provides me a front row seat to watch our youth defy all odds in the infamous Motor City.
