Saun Green, Program Director
Saun doesn't know what else she would do if she was not dedicating her life to the empowerment of teen girls. She describes the work that she does with young people (particularly low-income girls of color) as her greatest passion, and takes great pride in the successes of the young people she supervises and mentors. Saun's philosophy is that young people deserve quality programs that affect them in a meaningful, holistic way. She puts her belief into action when working with girls in Sisters Helping Other Unheard Teens (SHOUT!) and Poetically Speaking (Teen Voices' signature programs). Saun is a certified youth worker who has spent the past 12 years as an advocate, practitioner, and widely requested workshop facilitator for young people, and for the adults who work with them. Formerly the Teen Education Coordinator for the Blue Hill Boys and Girls Club, she also served as the president of the Rutland Corner Foundation Board of Trustees.
Saun holds a Bachelor's degree in Sociology from the University of Massachusetts, was born and raised in Boston, and attended Boston Latin School.
