Arielle Balbus

Arielle Balbus joined the WYG team after her freshman year of college as a summer intern. Working at WYG inspired Arielle to search out other organizations that help and enrich communities, to work and volunteer for throughout her college years. During her time as a student at Brown studying International Development Studies, Arielle worked on a climate justice movement with WE ACT (West Harlem Environmental Action), was a caseworker with Health Leads, and taught/coordinated for Brown’s Generation Citizen group, which teaches semester-long civics and activism workshops in under-resourced public schools.

We were excited to catch up with Arielle, and learn of the great things she is up to:

“After graduating, I worked on the Climate Outreach team at the Union of Concerned Scientists, and focused particularly on environmental health outreach to Latino communities. I am currently in a psychology doctoral program at the Wright Institute in Berkeley, CA, and plan to work with children and families in schools, community clinics, and the justice system. I have the fondest memories of my summer with WYG and am extremely grateful for the inspiration I received from Kaifa and other staff, and the amazing children I got to know there.”

Thank you Arielle for your contributions to WYG, and your continued work to make the world a better place!
