Outright Vermont has officially hired Dana Kaplan for the position of Director of Education.
“I’m thrilled and honored to be joining this fierce and powerful organization! I’m excited to go directly to the source, working with queer youth in their communities, assessing their needs and wants, and ultimately helping them to create vibrant and accessible spaces for their voices to be heard and celebrated. My perspective is infused with a love of dialogue and group facilitation, a firm belief and rootedness in anti-oppression work, and an overall determination to help make it easier for each of us to show up our authentic selves. Look for me at a school near you! I’ll be the one in a plaid shirt and argyle socks, learning from inspiring queer youth and their allies about how to create change and make Vermont better. Let’s do this!” – Dana
Dana can be reached at dana[at]outrightvt.org starting on his first day – Wed. March 6th, 2013!
