A message from Mary Walsh, Executive Director of City Connects:
I am delighted to announce a new member of the City Connects leadership team, Alison Stahl, who begins serving as Director of Implementation today. Alison comes to us with a strong background in nonprofit leadership. Most recently, she worked at Families United in Educational Leadership (FUEL), which works with low-income families in Boston, Chelsea, and Lynn to realize their dreams of a higher education and break the cycle of poverty. As Director of Programs at FUEL, Alison helped to develop their model and facilitate implementation in new sites. In this and other positions, she has gained experience in creating infrastructure for implementation, using data to inform practice. In her previous leadership positions, she has worked to foster the kinds of school-community partnerships that broaden educational opportunity and that are central to the City Connects model. Alison shares our passion of ensuring that every child comes to school ready to learn and thrive and we welcome her to our team!
