Re-Connecting Youth to their Families, Schools and Communities
Lo Halpern - Program & Outreach Coordinator
Lo is the newest member of our family here at Project Re-Connect. She is an Oakland native. She just graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with Honors in International Relations from Mills College and a double Minor in Spanish and African and African Diaspora Studies. She is tri-langual (Spanish, French and English), and has a knack for all things related to web design and social media (she designed our Website and our Business Cards). Her favorite part about Project Re-Connect is working with her incredible coworkers and having an opportunity to give back to her community, specifically black and brown youth. (View her LinkedIn)
Marrika Lopes - Program Manager
Marrika Lopes was introduced to the agency while in high school as a client. She has worn many hats at Project-ReConnect, but she is currently the Program Manager. Marrika has stayed connected since her introduction; participating in field trips, events, as well as groups before becoming a staff member. With a B.S. in Health Science her goal was to become a nurse, but working with the community and giving to other families what her own had received is her true passion.
Anna Rainey - Volunteer Assistant/Translator
Anna Rainey has been with Project Re-Connect, Inc. since October, 2014. She is our resident Spanish translation during our workshops and translates all of our literature. Anna is grateful that she get's to see the transformations in the youth and families as they progress through our workshops. Anna also credits her work here for greatly helping her in her personal life.
