Promise Corps leadership would like to welcome our newest teammate! Welcome Tameka Williams!
You can call me Meka if you’d like. I am from Philadelphia and recently moved back after living in Montgomery County last year. I graduated from the Community College of Philadelphia with a degree in Psychology. I will be graduating from Penn State this year. While in college I participated in a girls mentoring group in which the students could get support with academics and their personal life from female mentors. I was most recently a research specialist at Temple University and have also been a staff member at PHMC, the Girls Scouts of southeastern Pennsylvania and Kids of Destiny Learning Center. I served as an AmeriCorps member and truly valued my experience, especially serving on a team. I am looking forward to sharing my experiences with new members and supporting them during their time in service. I am excited to support as many students and members as possible with Promise Corps. Something interesting about me is I love watching Korean dramas. My hobbies include reading and crafting. My favorite book is “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” by Maya Angelou.
Tameka will be supervising the teams at West Philly High and Sayre High School! She has already jumped into working with school leaderships, supporting her teams and getting the year started the right way.
