PS 152/315 Youth Department Update

Back to all articles

Wilma George

FDC’s Youth department is expanding to include a Director of  COMPASS Programs position to oversee the operations for our elementary and junior high school programs. The best part is that this opportunity has been extended to an existing member of our team: Wilma George, former site director at our afterschool program at PS 152/315!

Wilma’s extensive youth development portfolio, exemplary leadership, holistic approach to stakeholder relations, and passion for the impact FDC has on our community, make her an excellent fit for the position.

Alicia Knight

Wilma’s recent promotion left us with a vacancy for a Program Director at P.S.152/315 and we are happy to announce that Alicia Knight has officially stepped into the role!

Alicia’s career with FDC began in 2016 when she joined the PS 152 team as a counselor.  Her reliability, work ethic, and willingness to pull her sleeves up to get the job done earned her the promotion to assistant director in October 2020. She excelled in her position and quickly became an indispensable part of the PS 152 administrative team.  The knowledge she has gained by working alongside  Wilma, the skillset from her former career as an NYS certified teacher, and her dedication to participants and families of 152/315 made her the best candidate for the position.
