PYB Alumni Spotlight: Kat Caskey
When Kat Caskey came to PYB as a student, she was looking for a chance to finish high school in a place that offered a supportive community - all of which she found at Portland YouthBuilders.
"I feel like I owed PYB a lot for the support I received," says Kat, "I wanted to give back how I could."
Kat is now a full-time AmeriCorps Volunteer as Placement Support at PYB, and continues to give back through her work with current students.
After she completed the PYB program, Kat went on to receive an associate degree from Portland Community College and this spring graduated from Lewis & Clark College with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology - graduating with honors both times.
We are so happy to have Kat as an AmeriCorps Volunteer and look forward to seeing more of the great work she is doing at PYB.
