City Year Milwaukee, an education nonprofit that recruits young adults for a year of service in public schools, is pleased to announce that Dr. Stephanie Maney-Hartlaub has been selected as the organization’s new executive director.
“We are pleased to welcome Dr. Stephanie Maney-Hartlaub as the executive director of City Year Milwaukee,” said Kevin Joy, Senior Vice President of Callan LLC and Board Co-Chair, of City Year Milwaukee. “Stephanie brings to the role a longstanding commitment to education and youth development efforts in Milwaukee, empowering others to become advocates for excellent schools.”
Dr. Maney-Hartlaub is an experienced nonprofit leader with exceptional educational and team leadership experience. From Milwaukee, she is a proud graduate of Milwaukee Public Schools’ Riverside University High School. She most recently served as the Senior Director of Talent Strategy and Development for City Forward Collective where she oversaw their talent strategy and the principal licensure program they operate with Alverno College, identifying high potential leaders and developing them through a blend of rigorous study, coaching, and field experience. Prior to joining City Forward Collective, Stephanie was a teacher and administrator with Milwaukee Public Schools.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to lead City Year Milwaukee —I am joining a talented team of professionals dedicated to advancing equitable outcomes for the youth in my hometown,” said Dr. Maney-Hartlaub. “City Year is poised to expand our work in Milwaukee, and I look forward to partnering with our community and school district, so together we can support more students to acquire critical skills and engage more deeply with their learning.”
This year, City Year Milwaukee AmeriCorps members serve full-time with 13 Milwaukee Public Schools, reaching more than 8,000 students each day. During their year of service, AmeriCorps members serve as tutors, mentors and role models, preparing students with the skills and mindsets to succeed in school and in life. Nationally, schools with City Year are two to three times more likely to improve on math and English assessments.
