YMCA of Kingston and Ulster
Rashida Tyler grew up in Kingston and attended Marist College, SUNY Albany and SUNY Albany’s Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy. She is the YMCA of Kingston and Ulster Associate Executive Director of Outreach and Program Development. “Growing up, my family was very involved in social justice and advocacy, particularly addressing socio-economic inequalities,” she said. “This initially led me to work in government as the Ulster County Director of Research and Programming, but I increasingly came to believe that the solutions to these problems lay in the community. The YMCA is a community-based organization dedicated to building strong connections and providing greater opportunities for youth and families.
