Hilary has over 20 years of research, organizing, and nonprofit experience. For the last ten years, Hilary has focused her energy on working for and with LGBTQ+ youth, youth of color, juvenile justice-involved youth, and other vulnerable youth populations. Her research has focused on the school-to-prison pipeline; harsh school discipline policies; and the importance of culturally relevant curriculum. As Vice President of Program, Strategy, & Impact, Hilary oversees School-Based Clubs, Learning & Development, Behavioral Health, Evaluation & Impact, and Citywide Services. Hilary is tasked with fostering a data-driven organizational culture in an effort to effectively monitor program quality, and increase organizational learning and impact. Hilary received her MA in Liberal Studies with a focus in Women’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies from CUNY Graduate Center. She enjoys spending time with her partner and pit-bull, supporting animal rescue organizations, painting, and hiking. 'In Emergent Strategy, Adrienne Maree Brown writes, ‘what you pay attention to grows.’ I care deeply about creating access—access to educational attainment, access to supportive and affirming communities, access to mentors, and access to behavioral health services. All young people should have access to these resources, and BGCSF works hard to make this a reality.”
