Carolyn Greenspan

By Ana Hageage, External Partnerships & Community Schools Director

Many times I wonder if there is one Carolyn or three. She is energetic, enthusiastic, committed, and proactive. It’s very hard to find all of these traits in one individual and Carolyn embodies them all!

On any given day, you’ll see her whiz by on her way to a DREAMER committee meeting, working directly with young people, working with the development team, and engaging with the rest of the Workforce Investment for Successful Employment (WISE) staff. “Carolyn has been the person with whom I can converse and rely on to make sense out of things,” said Keona Lee, WISE GED instructor. “She is very supportive of our students and she has an understanding that is beyond measure.”

The sheer scope of work Carolyn’s involved in speaks volumes about her commitment to the youth we serve. Students and staff alike feel as if they can rely on her and she is supportive beyond measure. “Carolyn is a fabulous team-player! She’s the perfect combination of energy, enthusiasm, care, and commitment needed to support the work of LAYC’s DREAMER committee,” said Cecilia Dos Santos, LAYC Dreamer committee member. “We’re lucky to have her on the team and for her dedication to go above and beyond her role to support the needs of immigrant youth and families.”

Carolyn first joined LAYC on our MMYC team in 2009 as a case manager, and LAYC has kept her close ever since. She never hesitates to volunteer for a task, especially if it’s a new learning opportunity. The development office loves working with her on grants, “Here in development, we always talk about the fact that Carolyn could be the permanent Development Superstar,” said Brandi Stanton, leader writer. “She is so conscientious, smart, kind, organized, and dependable. I could go on and on!”

As the WISE program coordinator, Carolyn’s ability to work with anyone makes her an ideal supervisor as well as one of the most humble and patient people I’ve had the pleasure of working with.
