Jennifer Harris

Jennifer Harris has 20 years’ experience in the field of out-of-school time programs.  She has worked in direct service for the Alaska Council of Camp Fire USA, served as the Special Projects Coordinator for School-Age Projects with Arkansas State University, Chair and Network Coordinator for the CS Mott funded afterschool network in Arkansas, and most recently as Director of the Denver Afterschool Alliance.  In her work she strives to transcend the efforts of traditional, siloed institutions and to instead create comprehensive supports for out-of-school time programs.  A true “systems-thinker” at heart, Jennifer continues to work closely with various intermediaries on projects that focus on matters that directly impact out-of-school time programs.  Jennifer holds a Masters in Public Administration with an emphasis in Organizational Leadership from the University of Alaska.
