Clementia (Chayse) Sylvester

Program Director


Growing up around California, returned to the tristate area and continued my studies with the University of Rhode Island, Universidad de La Habana, and Northumbria University. After working in community development globally for five years, I developed a passion for nonprofit service in collaboration with youth. In my spare time you can find me rock climbing, facilitating birth education workshops, teaching myself to bake, or hanging with my cat. I love YIA because I can meld all of my experience and work from a place of joy.
