Kiki: Kiki joined Friends for Youth in 2019 as our Youth Programs intern, and is now our Senior Recruitment Program Coordinator. She graduated summa cum laude from the University of San Francisco with a B.A. in Psychology, minor in Japanese Studies. Kiki is a Bay Area native, is trained in suicide risk assessment, and has always been passionate about mental health and supporting her community. She loves working at Friends for Youth because she sees how much of a positive impact the volunteers and program have on youth. Kiki’s dream is to become a school counselor and help youth reach their fullest potential. Kiki loves video games (she’s a gaming champion!), watching anime, drinking LaCroix, and spending time with family and friends. 私は日本語が話せます。

Jasmine: Jasmine joined the Friends for Youth team in early 2018 as our 1-to-1 and Group Mentoring intern, and she is now the Associate Program Coordinator for the school-based group mentoring program. Jasmine is passionate about mentoring our school youth and making a difference in her own community. She was born and raised in the Bay Area and is currently completing a B.A. in Sociology at California State University, East Bay. In high school, Jasmine was a mentee through another non-profit organization on the peninsula and learned how life-changing mentoring can be. Her dream is to become a high school guidance counselor to continue making a difference with youth. Jasmine enjoys trying new foods, traveling, and playing with her puppy Mia! Se entiende bien el español y habla un poco.

Cece: I have a B.S. in Environmental Sciences, a B.A. in Art Practice from UC Berkeley, and most recently, an MSW from Columbia University. I’ve been in social services since graduating college in 2013, starting off as an assistant teacher in Marin County, moving to Japan to teach English for a year and back to the Bay Area to begin my journey at Friends for Youth, running the 1-to-1 Mentoring Program for two years before I went back for my Masters. I’ve done development for P2L and the International Rescue Committee in New York and have also worked in Corporate Social Responsibility for Ascena Retail before the pandemic hit. I had always hoped to run nonprofit programs that serve kids who reminded me so much of my brother and me. In our youth, my brother and I felt neglected and lacked the support we needed, oftentimes feeling abandoned and hurt by the people meant to care for us. I hope for a world where all kids can grow up happy and healthy and am very grateful to have the chance to work towards
