JASMINE DAVIS (she, her, hers)
Manager of Academic and Mentoring Programming
Jasmine is a graduate of California University of Pennsylvania where she received a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Special Education Services. Her undergraduate studies led her to join City Year and Teach for America Dallas - Fort Worth where she served and taught for 7 years. While teaching, Jasmine pushed her students beyond their known limits and encouraged them to embrace success. She brings this same mantra and approach to YES as she pours into and learns from young people. This is the driving force that challenges her to adapt, establish and instill her core values, and show up daily. As a product of Pittsburgh Public Schools, Jasmine leverages her personal ties to the communities YES serves in her role as the Manager of Academic and Mentoring Programming. Overseeing YES’ academic and mentoring initiatives, Jasmine helps youth discover their self-identities, actualize their own power, and become agents of transformational change.
