David joins the New Haven Works Board of Directors as the Youth representative. Because David understands what it is like to be a youth in New Haven looking for opportunities, David has made a commitment to helping our city succeed and to ensuring that all of New Haven’s residents have opportunities, if they are willing to work for them.
“All my life, the measure of success that I heard was how far away from New Haven you can get. And I’m fighting to change that. I know that too often youth in our city become discouraged when they cannot see ways that they and their family can move forward and get more economic security. These youth are my friends and my family, and so I will bring a deep passion towards helping New Haven Works serve our community in the most effective ways possible.”
