Grace O. Akinbola

Social Worker, Community Organizer, and Founder in Queens, New York

Hire me

I am a Masters-level Social Worker, a Community Organizer, and the Founder of Ignite The Movement.

I am currently living in Queens, New York where I am a proud Community Organizer at RCCG Chapel of Praise.

My educational and professional experience, thus far, has produced a personal and professional zeal to aid youths and young adults. The most difficult stage in human development is ‘emerging adulthood’ and statistics note the probability for emerging adults to fall into various struggles if the right supportive structures aren’t put in place. My goal is to ensure that support structures are present, impactful, and accessible across all ethnicities and income levels and to exceed expectation through quick learning and a positive drive. I am often seen as compassionate, purpose-driven, and thoughtful by my colleagues and supervisors.

After reviewing my resume, cover letter, and portfolio you will agree that I am the professional you are seeking.

If you would like to get in touch, feel free to email me at or call me at (929) 322 - 3183.
