Welcome, Robin!

We are thrilled to share that Robin Katrick has joined the Vermont Afterschool team as our new Youth and Community Health Coordinator.

In this role at Vermont Afterschool, Robin will be piloting the Vermont Youth Project in several Vermont communities as well as supporting afterschool programs and staff with prevention tools and resources. The Vermont Youth Project is a community-driven collaborative designed to embrace positive youth development at the local level. At the root of the Vermont Youth Project is a data collection tool that will be based off the Iceland Prevention Model and encourages parents and communities to be engaged around positive youth development. Risk and protective factors are analyzed from an annual youth survey, which allows for targeted interventions at the local level.

Robin has several years of experience in community development, program development, and community health. At the start of her career, she has spent time overseas working with rural communities on sustainable development, clean water, and education projects. In Vermont, Robin has worked in wellness with the State of Vermont and most recently worked with the University of Vermont Medical Center developing a primary prevention program in Chittenden County. Robin has her BA in Community Development and Public Health and is currently working toward her MPH. She holds certifications in facilitative leadership, health coaching, running coaching, and EFL. Robin lives in Chittenden County with her husband and two dogs and enjoys long distance running, cycling, hiking, and being outdoors.
