Lots of exciting changes have been happening around the Tri-Community Coalition office.
Program Director: Regina Hollingshead
We first would like to welcome our new Program Director, Regina Hollingshead!
Regina graduated from Valparaiso University in 2009 with a degree in History and Secondary Education.
From 2009-2011 she ran a high school service learning program with City Year Seattle/King County. From 2010-2011 she taught ESL in Valparaiso, Indiana and served on the Board of Directors for the Valparaiso International Center.
In 2011, she moved to Detroit as part of Teach for America and taught in the Detroit Public Schools for three years. She is excited about this new transition into non-profit work, and looking forward to continuing her passion for improving and enriching the lives of youth with the Coalition.

We also would like to welcome our new intern, Dana Ocker! She is in her Senior year in the Social Work Program at OaklandUniversity. Her passion is focused on community organizing, social justice, and media reform. She is delighted to be working with us:
