Adam Angel has worked with youth for over 10 years as an advocate, mentor, teacher, manager and counselor. After mentoring youth in the city while at University of Maryland, he spent time doing drama health education in Ethiopia. Upon his return from Ethiopia, he attended Howard University School of Social Work.
Since then, Adam has worked in several schools and courts with youth who experience homelessness, family breakup or have recently been incarcerated. To combat these issues, he created a program to help youth advocates to change laws regarding employment and education in the city.
He also created a rites of passage program, work opportunities and social skills for the workforce. Most recently, Adam worked with Columbia University Business School and GYIN to create entrepreneurial opportunities for seven teams of youth.
