Hello! I am Alexis Obinna, the Community Advocacy Assistant at California Youth Connection, and I partner with Kate Teague to support the LA region. I have a Bachelors in Social Work and specialize in outreach, networking and engagement.  I am so grateful to support members in the LA Region, build relationships with community partners, provide outreach and engagement to new members,  and support current members. I meet the unique needs of LA through regular chapter visits, general support, training, and community building. 

I was a member of CYC for over 6 years and value the leadership , workforce, and networking opportunities I have gained as a member . I now have the privilege of doing what I love by working with CYC and it is amazing! CYC has impacted my life beyond membership and I am grateful to be a part of the leadership ladder by connecting foster youth to CYC and building relationships with various community partners.

I love my cats and making art, I also own two small Etsy businesses!
