Kaylie Simon

Student Assistant

Kaylie Simon graduated from UCSC with a degree in Community Studies with a focus on women's issues, youth empowerment and Latin American culture. During high school, Kaylie spent time volunteering in rural Bolivia. This experience made her eager to continue learning about Latin American culture and the Spanish language. Since then, her goal is to spread awareness about the necessity of access to quality education for all people.

Kaylie worked with the CJTC and the Elderado book club because she believes that uniting the university and the community members in Santa Cruz county is extremely important and positive. Kaylie completed a 6-month field study with the organization Global Kids in New York. She hopes to use the experience and knowledge gained through her involvement with the CJTC to enhance her contributions with Global Kids.
