Site coordinator: Lisa Christenson

My name is Lisa Christenson, or “Ms. C.,” as I have been fondly called by students and parents for the past nearly twenty years.  I began working with the youth of Southwest Detroit at Beard Elementary School as a parent volunteer in 1996.  During that time my schedule was pretty hectic.  I was a wife, mommy and full-time college student.  Volunteering at the school proved to be beneficial.  In a few short weeks, I was hired as a recreation assistant with the newly implemented after-school program.  In no time, I was able to apply the knowledge gained from coursework in business administration to garner a position as assistant site director.  Within one year, nearing the completion of my degree; I was promoted again to Site Administrator.  I had found my passion! 

I have extensive knowledge and experience in program management; and thrive on being instrumental in the successful implementation of programs that educate, enrich and empower at-risk youth and their communities.  I possess a clear understanding of the challenges associated with operating within the confines of cash-strapped budgets; and the necessity of being proactive in identifying resources to have a direct and meaningful impact.  I am a servant and champion for assisting youth in reaching their highest potential.  I look forward to the opportunity to serve the Warren Mott High School community as Site Coordinator of the Wayne State University, C2 Pipeline Program.
