Meet Jane Kim (http://www.janekim.org)
She's a smart, dedicated, and passionate individual who's keen on making changes within the SF School District.
And yup. She blogs.
And better yet, she wants to meet bloggers in SF who want to learn more about what's going on with the schoolboard.
Jane Kim is the youth program director at the Chinatown Community Development Center, a 28 year-old affordable housing nonprofit that also engages in community organizing, education and planning. For the past six years, she has worked with over 200 San Francisco high school students developing youth leadership, advocacy and civic engagement through youth-initiated community service projects.
Previously, Jane was a fellow at Greenlining Institute, where she advocated for a range of issues, including consumer protection, access to higher education and universal life line issues, for low-income communities of color and immigrant communities.
She is also a co-director and co-founder of Locus Arts, a volunteer-run venue in San Francisco that showcases emerging musicians, writers, filmmakers and actors. Now, in its sixth year, Locus has showcased over 450 artists and reaches over 1500 audience members.
Outside of work, Jane has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and plays bass guitar. She completed her undergraduate degree at Stanford University in Political Science and Asian American Studies.
