Marisol gets a flying start

I’m delighted to announce that Marisol De Leon is joining the ACT for Youth Training and Technical Assistance team! A talented trainer with deep knowledge, Marisol comes to us with an extensive portfolio in the fields of positive youth development and adolescent sexual health. From designing an HIV prevention curriculum at the Hetrick-Martin Institute way back in 2004, to educating 10,000 NYC middle and high school students about reproductive health during her years at the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center, to serving as the CAPP Coordinator, among other roles, at DREAM (formerly Harlem RBI) – Marisol has done it all. She is also bilingual in English and Spanish. Total number of students educated over her career so far? Upwards of 18,000.

Marisol will be based in New York City with Michele Luc and Sara Birnel Henderson at Cornell University Cooperative Extension of NYC. She can be reached at:Β md696@cornell.edu

Please join me in welcoming Marisol!
