YFC is happy to announce that Sara McClellan, Assistant Professor in the California State University Sacramento Department of Public Policy & Administration, will be conducting a participatory action research study with YFC. Dr. McClellan will be using her experience and expertise in public administration, policy, and communication to assist YFC in administrative planning and collaboration efforts during the start-up phase. She has agreed to act as a facilitator of initial meetings and as a participant observer throughout YFC’s planning and initial implementation phase.
Dr. McClellan earned her Ph.D. in Organizational Communication at the University of Colorado at Boulder and her Masters in Public Administration from USC; and she studies innovative organizing and communication practices designed to improve health, safety, and education outcomes in rapidly changing communities.
We are excited to have her on board as we take action to collaborate in program and service delivery as well as back-office operations!
