Resource Development Coordinator
A native of Los Angeles, Tyler developed a passion for empowerment, encouragement and putting smiles on faces at a young age. While attending UCLA, he became intimately aware of the educational and health disparities within Los Angeles County and was inspired to pursue a career impacting and uplifting communities that historically have been underserved. Realizing that he couldn’t simply learn about issues that impact communities that he’s a part of and not fight for improved experiences, Vernon pursued leadership positions aimed at uplifting and empowering Black men. As the Resource Development Coordinator, he implements strategies that bolster capacity and the ability to provide economically vulnerable youth with enhanced academic experiences.
