Leah collaborates with the LIFT-New York team to strengthen our member engagement. Primarily, she serves as a liaison between LIFT members, staff, and community partners, overseeing member recruitment efforts. In addition to introducing families to our coaching program and conducting intakes, she does outreach in order to connect members to resources, generating opportunities for parents to build social and economic capital through workshops and community events.
Leah LIFTs because she knows that supporting parents is crucial to children’s success and the future of our community. Before joining LIFT, Leah was a public school elementary teacher in the Bronx for seven years, as well as a youth program volunteer and community gardener. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and Spanish, and a Masters Degree in Teaching from Relay Graduate School of Education.
