Our Staff

The GJHP Program Directors are critical to our mission of building socially aware, civic-minded and community-oriented individuals. Responsible for coordinating opportunities for volunteerism, community events and activities, as well as time spent in the Oasis, our program directors also help students reflect and process these experiences in the community, on the stage or in a social setting, in the context of mentors, counselors and advisors.
