Berta Jacquet is a first-year Americorps member serving the youth of Walker Elementary School. She is originally from Fort Myers, Florida and previously attended Florida State University. Berta received her Bachelors of Science in Sociology, with a focus on Child Development, in 2016 and has worked in youth development ever since.
She serves because she truly believes in Y.O.U.'s mission to bridge the opportunity gap for underrepresented youth in Evanston/Skokie. Someday Berta will use her experiences to start her own youth development nonprofit(s).
