    Yolanda Stokes 

    Yolanda is currently a Neighborhood Ally Associate for the Southward Children's Alliance in Newark. In addition to being a proud single mom of two boys, Yolanda has dedicated her life to building stronger community engagement, anchoring herself as a “ground trooper.” She believes a child’s zip code should not determine their educational success so she works tirelessly to ensure that all children have access to high-quality educational options in their neighborhoods and that parents have a strong voice. Whether it is bridging the gaps between residents and the police force, advocating for equitable school funding, or learning and teaching CPR to other Newarkers, she is a driving force for growth and improvement throughout the city.
