It’s time to meet the first member of the Brooklyn team! Meet Sarah, a recent graduate of Rice University with a passion for analyzing socioeconomic disparities in housing, education, and criminal justice. In the America Works of New York office in Brooklyn, she has an opportunity to gain firsthand experience working with the individuals who face the very disparities she researched in her studies.
Some people like long walks on the beach, and then there's Brandon, the Work First Fellow located in the America Works office in Bronx, New York. When he needs a moment or two away from the fast pace of the office, he likes to take long walks in his Bronx neighborhood, which he calls his “beautiful neck of the woods.”
