Shannon Black

Out-of-School Time Specialist


From the time of her first protest march at the age of twelve, Shannon knew that her calling was to help make the world a better place, but it wasn’t until an accidental work-study posting in her senior year of college that she realized her place to do that was in out of school time programming. Shannon has worked specifically with underserved populations for over 8 years and has spent the last four years in out of school time programs. She specializes in the use of pop culture and transformative works to create social change and the creation of specific safe zones for at risk groups.
