Bronte Graham, Site Coordinator of School #4         
                                           I, Bronte Graham, born and raised in the heart of Rochester, NY. I graduated from Olympia High School in Greece, NY. Following my desire to help
the community I became a Certified Nursing Assistant my graduating year. As a CNA, I worked in community homes and actual homes of elderly fulfilling my desire to help. I decided to continue on in the field of health and attended Monroe Community College to study nursing. While in school and looking for work, I was introduced to a program created especially for inner city youth called Quad A for Kids, where I worked as a member of the Support Staff. Having a strong mind, motivating words, and an even bigger heart, I was promoted to Site Coordinator shortly after my first 2 years. I now consider myself to be a “Development Advocate” for youth. I am now committed to inputting thoughts and creating ideas that help prepare my students for better success while having a motivating impact on the community. 

While working for Quad A, My love for educating youth has grown. As a result of my hard work and dedication, I was recruited to return to Quad A for Kids as Site Coordinator at George Mather Forbes, school No. 4. Entering into the 2016-17 school year in January 2017 I was enrolled in the NYS SAC Credential course with intentions of soon being a possible Director for the upcoming year. I am now ready to share bright ideas and success plans with students and staff as I remain dedicated to enlighten and encouraging our youth in the Rochester Community.

The best experience in working with children is to see the changes that occur after they participate in my program. Being able to create a bond and family orientated lifestyle within our program reflects on the success of my students and families and is very rewarding.
