JAYSON GREEN ANNOUNCED AS NEW SONG COMMUNITY LEARNING CENTER’S NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

On behalf of the New Song Community Learning Center board, it is our great pleasure to announce Jayson Green as our new Executive Director. Jayson was selected after a robust search process that involved board, staff, community and other key stakeholders. He will begin with New Song on Monday, December 14.

Jayson has spent his career working with young people and their families to expand their educational and employment opportunities and build strong community connections and supports. For the last several years as the executive director of the Druid Hill YMCA, Jayson made it his mission to reach out and get to know the West Baltimore community. He welcomed and invited the community to become members of this historic “’Y”. Developing successful partnerships with other community-based nonprofits and agencies, Jayson was able to offer innovative programming and expand membership and connection.

Originally from the South Bronx and the son of a teacher, Jayson grew up in a community much like West Baltimore understanding the critical importance of education and equity. In addition to his work with the YMCA, Jayson has worked to help young people and their families apply and access college opportunities and to ensure young children and their parents are ready to start school. Jayson has helped run businesses and organizations by raising and stewarding the critical funds needed to accomplish their missions. He has focused on equity and inclusion as the key to organizational success.

Jayson comes to New Song Community Learning Center at an exciting time. He brings the energy, enthusiasm and experience to meet this important moment of challenge and growth. We are confident that with Jayson’s leadership, the commitment of the board and staff, and the engagement of our community, New Song will build on its rich legacy as a hub for the children and families of New Song and the broader community of Sandtown-Winchester we serve.

I hope you will join us in welcoming Jayson Green, New Song Community Learning Center’s new Executive Director!

With gratitude and hope,

-Vicki  Schultz
