Perry has dedicated his career to serving youth through the public and private school sectors of San Francisco for over ten years. He first gained interest in social work and child development during his volunteerism with a local afterschool program in college. However, he truly discovered his passion when he worked as an AmeriCorps Volunteer, encouraging youth to give back to their communities by hosting and organizing volunteer events with local community partners.
Most recently, Perry served as Program Director for Boys Hope Girls Hope San Francisco, a nonprofit organization committed to closing the achievement gap by supporting students from middle school through college graduation. As a first-generation college student himself, he passionately led the organization’s initiatives to support academically promising youth to make it to and through college. Perry now serves as Program Manager for the Maisin Scholar Award, where he will manage and support over 300 scholars in post-secondary education. He is ecstatic and eager to work with collegians of the program to ensure that our scholars not only make it to college but finish and transition into successful careers.
