Meet Yehwroe: The Newest Member of CPA's Team

A little about me:

I am a Washington, DC native; first generation Liberian-American; avid book reader and an agent for social change. My previous work experiences have largely been at the intersection of advocacy and social enterprise; working for the likes of the NAACP and UberEATS, respectively. From these experiences, I have acquired many transferable skills, however, my key strengths are partnership building and program coordination.

As the DC Program Manager, I provide direct programmatic support to the Regional Director.  I am primarily responsible for exploring new membership and vendor opportunities and managing significant parts of the program operations and communications, in efforts to improve CPA’s ability to help more organizations save money. I hold a dual Bachelors of Arts in Africana Studies and Psychology from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Currently, I am  also a part-time/online graduate student at the Pennsylvania State University, seeking a dual Masters in Community and Economic Development and Business Administration.
