Born and raised in Buffalo, New York, the newest member of our team Aujanae Donalson received her Master of Social Work from Syracuse University. Through her work in various settings including inpatient rehabilitation, child & family services, public schools, housing and community-based organizations, she discovered a developed passion for working with youth. Prior to joining MLOV, Aujanae worked as a case manager with young mothers. Aujanae believes that self-sufficiency, access to resources and strong support systems are the foundation for success in life. As the Youth Programs Coordinator, she will lead the educational enrichment programming that will enhance our student’s experiences, in and out of school. Aujanae looks forward to assisting youth developing external assets with balanced family support systems, positive school environments, good peer influences and internal assets like responsibility, honesty and healthy self-esteem.
