Kate Teague, Lead Community Advocacy Coordinator

Kate has been with CYC since 2006, first as the Bay Area/Central Valley Outreach Coordinator, then the Bay Area Regional Coordinator, and now the Lead Community Advocacy Coordinator. Kate first became involved with CYC as an Americorp intern at the Bill Wilson Center in Santa Clara County when her then supervisor, Deryk Clark (a former CYC board member), told her that part of her job would be to attend CYC meetings. After several years of volunteering as an Adult Supporter with the Santa Clara and Alameda Chapters, she joined the CYC staff. 

Kate enjoys working at a place where “youth led” and “youth driven” are concepts that are assumed and it is a given that youth have the knowledge and experience to make powerful contributions to systems change.
