Danielle Staton is the Executive Director of Jeremiah Program’s Baltimore campus. She has spent her professional career dedicated to expanding equity and access to underserved communities in educational spaces. Over the last 15 years, she has served in several capacities that align with the two-generation model of Jeremiah Program, including Head Start and early childhood education programming, family and community engagement, college access, and workforce development. She most recently served as the founding Senior Director of Programs with iMentor Baltimore, leading the strategy and implementation of iMentor’s school-based programming in the organization’s newest region.

In 2017 she was one of three winners of the Inaugural Howard County ChangeMaker Challenge for her idea “College Readiness Communities,” focused on creating a community of support for high school students planning to be the first in their families to attend college. Danielle, a fellow first-generation college student and mother, is excited about building a similar community of empowerment and support with JP moms in Baltimore. Danielle has a Bachelor of Arts in psychology and anthropology from Boston University and a Master of Science in education from the Education, Culture, and Society program at the University of Pennsylvania.
