My name is Sylvie, I am a German American who has been connected with Los Alamos since 1986.
As a teenager I lived in Los Alamos for a year as a foreign exchange student. Life in the Wild West and the American Way of Life appealed to me greatly...I felt right at home. Found the love of my life in Los Alamos and after brief stints in Kiel, Seattle, and Hamburg my journey brought me back to Los Alamos in 2001. I have four children, two in college, one in high school, and one middle schooler.
I have been with the YMCA/Teen Center for about three years and it has been a great place to work with and around teens. I love my Youth Mobilizers, a wonderful group of teen leaders. Be it meetings to figure out the next events, to hanging out and cooking together -- it is such a joy to spend time with the teens and watch them grow.
Please come and find us on our discord server (link to discord server) and join the YM group. We are there, ready to connect with you.
And always remember….Love Is The Answer
I am privileged to be the Youth Mobilizers Coordinator at the Los Alamos Teen Center. The Youth Mobilizers propose and implement leadership projects and teen-focused events. The teens further their skills in areas of interest, learned leadership, and job skills. They participate. They make a difference. They are committed.
