Each day I grow prouder of the UA and all that it has become. I was a founding student all through middle school and high school for an Urban Assembly school. While it feels like an eternity ago, UA has evolved much since then. The Alumni Success team has since been created and has branched out into the world of webinars and trainings. Being a UA student is taking the building blocks of what I learned in high school and making it my own. I learned the importance of partnerships and building a network and today I take that with me to the work we do for alums. I support them through their time after high school and the UA becomes a part of their network, thus creating a cycle of connection between the alums, UA, and the world around them.
Angelina Lorenzo, Alumni Success Coordinator
My decision to be part of The Urban Assembly was easy for several reasons. I know I wanted to be in a work environment that aligned with my values of community building and advocacy. I wanted to see and have leadership that valued people and was open to tough conversation should the need arise. I can say that I have seen and or experienced the above. It is my belief that a work environment should simultaneously be one of personal and professional growth and comradery. The Urban Assembly provides both for me.
Kandra Knowles, Social-Emotional Learning Program Manager
Working at the Urban Assembly means working alongside some of the most passionate, committed, inspiring professionals in the field. UA program team members work alongside schools to solve persistent challenges in public education, and then we get to innovate and scale across the system. My teammates identify as coaches and facilitators first, so we are able to learn together and model greatness throughout our organization.
