Vice President of Parent Programming
Lynn Clark is the Vice President of Parent Programming at Jeremiah Program. She is a visionary servant-leader with a strong track record of empowering the growth and success of mission-critical organizations meeting the needs of underserved populations. As an education and non-profit leader with over 30 years inside and outside the classroom, she brings a comprehensive understanding of program design and development, research, evaluation, and the ability to scale and sustain programs that meet complex, adaptive challenges. Her work is grounded in direct experience teaching and leading programs for adults and children, birth through college, and working with low-income communities in New York City.
Most recently, Lynn served as the Chief Program Officer at Literacy Partners, where she oversaw adult literacy programs for parents of young children who wanted to continue their education and invest in the early literacy of their children. At Literacy Partners, Lynn worked with a talented team of teachers and leaders to increase services to families while doubling the number of parents served in two years. Prior to moving to New York, Lynn was the Executive Director of the Children’s Coalition for Northeast Louisiana, where she worked with community members to establish early childhood and educational support programs for families in one of the poorest regions in the country. She is a tenured member of the education faculty at the University of Louisiana Monroe and has worked as a program evaluator, textbook writer and editor, and middle school teacher.
Lynn holds a Ph.D. in curriculum studies from Indiana University Bloomington and a Master of Education from the University of the Pacific. Her first degree, a B.A. in vocal performance from UCLA, is now her favorite hobby, and Lynn continues to sing with several choirs in New York City.
