As Director of Human Resources for CYC, Yaasmin ensures that the organization cultivates a continuous learning environment, is compliant with the most recent labor laws and HR practices, and cultivates and upholds a strong team to implement our youth-led mission and vision.
Yaasmin brings to CYC over a decade of experience in human resources, having served as a Human Resources Analyst for the City of West Hollywood, where she was responsible for the administration of various benefit programs, compensation, recruitment and selection, and employee training and development.
After retiring from the public sector, Yaasmin discovered CYC while looking for an opportunity in the nonprofit field where she hoped to work with others who are passionate about a cause and motivated by purpose. She believes that there is no cause more significant than that of advocating for the rights of youth in the foster care system.
Yaasmin attended California State University, Long Beach, where she studied Business Administration, and the University of California, Los Angeles, where she studied Human Resources Management.
