Current NCJC board member, Angie Jordan, an Iowa City native, graduate of Williams College and a The Knitting Guild Association (TKGA) Master Knitter, started the Children of Promise Mentor Program in the basement of the Broadway Neighborhood Center in 2008 serving teens with parents in prison. She would also help to start the Youth Empowered to Serve (YES) program, along with leading lunch groups and after-school teen groups at NCJC. Later, Angie would become an NCJC Family Support Advocate before starting her own family and also becoming an adjunct instructor of Team Building at the University of Iowa. In 2017, she became a NCJC board member to continue connecting her experiences, ideas and passion to community efforts.

Through her personal and professional life, Angie has served the Iowa City area for over 15 years through youth and family programming, neighborhood revitalization, voter engagement and business development. In 2012, she started her own business that has evolved into Banjo Knits Empowerment LLC that focuses on Community Development & Entrepreneurial Empowerment services along with a Mindfulness and Patience Practice through knitting instruction. In 2016, she founded The Banjo Knits Project to increase the number of knitters in the world. She was the president and still is an active member of the Alexander Elementary School PTO . Angie co-founded and is currently the president of the South District Neighborhood Association where shespearheaded many grassroots community development efforts such as the coordination of the 4,400 square foot "Our Children Spoke” Broadway Street Mural, Bike to Books: A Little Free Library Adventure and the Diversity Markets. Additionally, she is a tri-chair for the Project Better Together 2030 Steering Committee. Currently, she is working on her masters in Community Development through Iowa State University. Angie believes we are all interconnected and part of being the change we seek.

This month we would like to highlight local community members exemplifying in our community. These individuals have contributed greatly to NCJC as we've worked to serve families and youth since 1973.

Thank you Angie!

The purpose of the PTO is to enhance and support the educational experience at Alexander,to develop a closer connection between school and home by encouraging parent involvement, and to improve the environment at Alexander....
