Following Her Passion

Following Her Passion

aSWOP Staff-Jamillah Rashad-2763Jamillah Rashad has decided to follow her passion and is leaving SWOP.  Ever since she started at SWOP, Jamillah has told anyone who would listen that she loves early childhood work.  To that end, Jamillah has taken a position with the City of Chicago helping to plan and deliver high quality, early childhood programming.

Jamillah started with SWOP over five years ago, working on the Elev8 program at Marquette.  She moved from being an assistant to running the program at the school.  She played a key role in the successful transition of AUSL turning around the school and in the integration of the Esperanza Health Center into the program.  Her next role at SWOP was running the Parent Mentor Program.  She helped to successfully implement the program this year in 12 schools in the community.

We wish Jamillah all the best.  If you have questions about the Parent Mentor Program, please contact Maggie Perales at mperales@swopchicago.org.
