The Aspen Institute Forum for Community Solutions (AIFCS) is lucky to partner with movers and shakers from communities scattered across the country. Freda Crichton, a leader in our opportunity youth work, is one such person in Seattle/South King County.
“Between her job at King County, her position on the Road Map Project’s Community Leadership Team, and her active participation in the local Pacific Islander community, she has given back more to her community as a young adult than many of us ever will in a lifetime,” said Nicole Yohalem of the Road Map Project who has worked with Freda for four years. “Freda is an incredible leader.”
Freda now works at Reconnect to Opportunity in King County, Wash., where she connects opportunity youth, who are 16–24-year-olds who have dropped out of school or are in danger of dropping out, to an education program as well as helping them find employment. She said her focus there is to increase graduation rates.
