Farrah Lafontant, Associate Leader Success Strategist


Farrah Lafontant, a proud Brooklynite, discovered her passion for community engagement when she served as a Parent Coordinator at New York City's Department of Education. There, she learned the power of advocacy, community, and coalition building. She often finds her self in awe at civic leaders who are passionate about change their communities on their own terms. She is excited to bear witness to this type of leadership on a national scale, and support it through her work as an Associate Leader Success Strategest.


When she's not working to drive change in her own neighborhood, she's practicing her kreyol, exploring her passion of all things fiber arts, or leading walking tours focusing on the history, architecture and culture of her East New York neighborhood, in Brooklyn.
