Allyson Criner Brown Selected for Fellowship

We are proud to announce that associate director Allyson Criner Brown has been selected by the Nonprofit Roundtable of Greater Washington for a prestigious fellowship that will expose her to a rich network of mentors, colleagues, and other nonprofit organization leaders. This intensive experience will prepare her for a future executive directorship.

Allyson joined Teaching for Change in September 2010 as associate director and program manager of Tellin’ Stories, our nationally recognized approach to family engagement. Allyson is driven by experiences in the field and managing programs in community based nonprofits that focus on education, youth development, and social justice.

She holds a master’s degree in public administration with a concentration in nonprofit management from the George Washington University. She has received awards from the National Academy of Public Administration and the National Forum for Black Public Administrators.

The Roundtable introduced the 25 new Fellows in the Future Executive Directors Fellowship at its annual meeting on June 14, 2012. Since its inception in 2008, 50 Fellows have graduated from this program and seven have assumed positions as Executive Directors.
