As the far southern community advocacy coordinator, Kenny’s primary responsibilities include promoting leadership development, strengthening chapter processes, facilitating community and advocacy efforts, building local relationships to strengthen access to decision-makers to build the social capitol of members, and increase visibility for funding opportunities, and developing curriculum and training materials.
Kenny feels blessed he was introduced to CYC at an early age. As a member, CYC showed him that young people had a voice, and not only a voice but a story. After attending several county meetings as a youth he started to see change, he also started to understand there was a bigger purpose to this work. The work being done changes the lives of youth, like his younger sister. From that moment, he found Advocacy and never looked back.
In Kenny’s free time he coaches youth baseball, watches sports, all while spending quality time with his family.
