Community organizing comes naturally to Joy Zhan, the newest program coordinator of Tech Squad, a part of Felton's Senior Division. Those organizing roots go back as early as high school when in the 11th Grade, she founded the Chinese Progressive Association, advocating for change. For Joy, the first step in building community is to bridge communication gaps.
“As the oldest child of an immigrant family, I'm the one my parents went to for help because I can speak English. I was always drawn to social engagement and civic duties. I wanted to make sure other immigrant families weren't confused as they navigated this new world. I wanted to be that bridge between city resources and city systems for monolingual immigrant families.”
