Andre A. Lewis

social entrepreneur and political engagment strategiist in New York

Andre Lewis has over 15 years experience in youth and small business in management roles, civic engagement, marketing and youth program development. He was a founding member of the one of the first funded run-away and homeless youth drop-in centers in Brooklyn, New York. Appointed Executive Director of the Emmanuel Community Development Corporation and its “Model Teens That Mean Business” youth entrepreneurship program and served most recently as a community delegate/ advisor for Participatory budgeting within the 35th District, New York City Council. His previous experience in the political campaigning and civic engagement in underserved and hard to reach communities as Brooklyn Canvass Manager for the Bloomberg Campaign has provided him with valuable networks and knowledge bases that led his quest to engage untapped youth in becoming civic minded, placing their issues on the frontline of the 2020 Democratic experience.

He is the driving force behind #Untapped 2020 and is passionate about providing homeless or at-risk of homelessness youth, with the best opportunities to become good community citizens and to live full and healthy lives. He believes that our youth are our future and projects to support youth are best delivered by a “whole of community” collaborative approach.

_____________________________

My professional work history reflects a broad background in service/ product development, marketing, fundraising, financial analysis, budgeting, accounting and management, as well as a strong record of responsibility and accomplishment.

I have an assertive work ethic with a straightforward results-driven approach to staff management and project completion. Moreover, my interpersonal and communication skills enhance my financial and management skills.

Community Based Professional Service:

I have invested over 15 years in the furtherance of public welfare, particularly with respect to issues surrounding K-12 education, health based prevention, youth and family services. During that time, I have been an integral part of several successful organizations and bring the same zeal and expertise in my current position as the founder of a K-12 EdTech start up.

My Goal is to learn from valuable life experiences and apply them to my ever-growing professional career in leadership.
