KB Goodkin is the director of community engagement and advancement at the Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York. In the last two years she re-branded NENY’s YLD department, instituting new methods for engagement and bringing new partnerships within community agencies.
KB’s mission is to provide tools and education for young folks to empower themselves within their Jewish experiences and take ownership of their communities. She works within the community to create a pluralistic environment which cultivates Jewish identity among its members in a meaningful and personal way.
Prior to her move to Northeastern NY, KB worked as an award-winning Hillel director and adult education coordinator in Richmond, VA.
When so moved, KB blogs at http://emunamonkey.blogspot.com/.
