Dominique Lumpkins, Site Coordinator of School #4


Meet Dominique Lumpkins. As she passionately states, “Not in a million years did I picture myself working with kids & LOVING it!” Growing up in a household with 8 siblings, she became very fond of “childcare” at an early age. At 15, Dominique began working with youth at The Community Place of Rochester as a Summer Camp Counselor. She later became an After-School Educator. The following summer, Dominique was promoted to Summer Camp Coordinator.

Fast forward to now, Dominique is still amazed at how much she has grown and learned from working with youth. Currently, Dominique is the Site Coordinator at George Mather-Forbes School #4. This will be her 3rd year at this school site. It is Dominique’s love for children and their success that keeps her going. Providing them with experiences and opportunities that she wasn’t granted as a child is motivation enough for her to go above and beyond for each child that she comes in contact with...
