GreenLight Fund | BOSTON Emerald Evening 2019 Event Program

By 2019 Michelle Lambert has partnered with GreenLight Fund on four fundraising events. She is responsible for the creative development and execution for the events pre, post, and onsite creative; seamlessly incorporating the many recognizable sponsor brands, into fun interactive activities, onsite and cross-media promotions. It is a truly remarkable creative team that Michelle works with, from the event producer to catering, entertainment, performers, and treasured philanthropists. GreenLight Fund Boston identifies critical needs low-income families face in our city and imports organizations from across the country to fill that gap. We match our greatest needs with our greatest opportunity. Currently, there are more than 75,000 unemployed residents — and when we factor underemployment, that number grows. Forty-three percent of Boston residents do not have a college degree but have earned a high school degree or the equivalent. Meanwhile, jobs in the tech sector are projected to grow in the double-digits over the next years. GreenLight Boston is proud to welcome Per Scholas! Originally from the Bronx, Per Scholas is now in twelve cities across the country.

OUR PARTNERSHIP<br />

GREENLIGHT FUND: MEETING COMMUNITY<br />

NEEDS WITH PROVEN SOLUTIONS<br />

The <strong>GreenLight</strong> Method, a five-part process, provides a focused<br />

approach to making investments where they will have the most<br />

impact. It’s how we stay nimble enough to address pressing<br />

needs and seize opportunities as they arise.<br />

We are an on-the-ground partner who deeply cares about<br />

our community. To ensure early and long-term success, the<br />

<strong>GreenLight</strong> <strong>Fund</strong> provides significant resources and strategic<br />

support during a portfolio organization’s first years in Boston.<br />

Each portfolio organization continues as part of the <strong>GreenLight</strong><br />

Boston family thereafter. The latest addition is Per Scholas.<br />

Adults of all ages deserve well-paying jobs and careers. We are<br />

excited to welcome Per Scholas to the Greater Boston community.<br />

PER SCHOLAS: PLANS FOR <strong>BOSTON</strong><br />

Founded in 1995 in the Bronx, Per Scholas was created to bridge the digital divide by reconditioning old<br />

computers and giving them away to schools and families in need. As part of this mission, they trained<br />

adults from the community to recondition computers. Holding on to talent from the community was<br />

difficult — they realized that residents, once completing Per Scholas training, were leaving for better<br />

paying jobs, taking with them the skills employers desperately needed. More than two decades later, Per<br />

Scholas has evolved to a national organization, opening doors to transformative technology careers for<br />

individuals from often overlooked communities in about a dozen cities. This year, Per Scholas enrolled its<br />

10,000th student. 87% of graduates are people of color and 31% are women.<br />

STEP 5:<br />

MEASURE<br />

STEP 4:<br />

INVEST<br />

Under the leadership of the Per Scholas Greater Boston team, more than 800 adults<br />

will receive free training and preparation for a career in IT over the next four years.<br />

SELECT<br />

MEET THE PER SCHOLAS LEADERSHIP TEAM<br />

Robin Nadeau — Managing Director, Greater Boston<br />

Robin is a servant leader who creates opportunity, fosters social change, and grows collaboration. She has over 20 years<br />

experience in workforce development, education, and community development — both domestically and internationally —<br />

having served communities in over twenty states, as well as in Ukraine and Poland. She is passionate about creating access<br />

and opportunity for people who face barriers to employment.<br />

Her work includes past positions of leadership at nonprofits, including School and Main Institute, Year Up, and Goodwill<br />

Industries International, leading program design, management, and organizational growth, as well as facilitating social<br />

change and partnership efforts at national, regional and local levels. She has experience facilitating and coaching leaders<br />

in education, nonprofits, and business, and growing long-term partnerships between the public and private sectors. The<br />

crux of Robin’s work has always been systems-building partnership efforts, skill building, collaborative leadership, and<br />

cross-sector collaboration.<br />

Plinio Ayala — CEO and President<br />

Plinio became President and CEO of Per Scholas in November 2003 after having served as Vice President of Operations<br />

with oversight for the bulk of Per Scholas’ programs. Today he leads the organization in its national expansion. Plinio<br />

previously served as Director of <strong>Program</strong> Operations at SOBRO, and, before that, as Chief <strong>Program</strong> Officer at Jobs for<br />

Youth. In 2012, he joined a diverse group of stakeholders with decades of experience in New York City’s workforce<br />

system to develop a blueprint for the new Mayor, re-envisioning the New York City Workforce System. Plinio has more<br />

than 20 years of nonprofit management experience and is deeply committed to the fight against poverty. When not<br />

at Per Scholas, Plinio spends time with his three children and wife...and the New York Mets.<br />
