Yvonne Williams is Pre-teen Coordinator at Pius XII Youth & Family Services in the North Bronx. For the past 5 years, she has been the driving force that has made the pre-teen program so strong, including career days, drug prevention education, weekly community-building projects, and arts programs, to name a few. What makes Yvonne extraordinary is her ability to help pre-teens develop positive social skills through her expertise in community and team building. The waiting list for her program continues to grow with her reputation as an outstanding youth program leader. Within Pius, she is an active member of the Youth Worker Staff Development Workgroup, where she both designs and facilitates trainings, often on weekends and Saturdays. Her hard work and her skills as a communicator, listener and organizer set a high standard for all youth workers.
