Kelly Danko ’25 is an Early Childhood and Childhood Education major in the School of Education with a concentration in English in the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences on the New York City campus. Her number one goal in life is to change as many students’ lives as possible. Kelly’s love and dedication for education began as early as middle school when she sought out volunteer programs that were education-based and attended a vocational high school where she studied education and human services. At Pace, she works as a team leader for the non-profit Jumpstart program, which helps promote literacy as well as social and emotional skills among preschool students in the Lower East Side of Manhattan and prepares them for Kindergarten. Since this is her second year at Jumpstart, she has seen some of the children grow in age but also in academic abilities, which is one of her favorite components about working at Jumpstart. In addition to her classroom service, Kelly’s role as a team leader also consists of leading a group of other Jumpstart employees and preparing them for the sessions at the preschool. Through this, she has gotten to work alongside many hardworking individuals who have helped her grow her teamwork and leadership skills. Besides her work at Pace, she also holds other positions in the education field such as working at a before and aftercare program, substitute teaching at her old elementary school, and student teaching in New York City schools.

Pace University's Center for Community Action and Research Jefferson Award winner Sarah Delannoy, MSW, site manager of Jumpstart in the Center of Undergraduate Research

Sarah Delannoy, MSW, is the Pace site manager of Jumpstart in the Center of Undergraduate Research on the New York City campus. This is part of the nationally based, non-profit Jumpstart program dedicated to supporting early childhood education through collaborative partnerships with institutions of higher education. Sarah provides ongoing work-study, volunteer, and summer internship opportunities at three Head Start preschool locations, serving over 250 children since 2021. Under Sarah’s leadership and oversight, she has recruited and trained 50 college students to work with Jumpstart’s preschool partner sites. In 2022, Sarah collaborated with Jumpstart and preschool partners to host a nationwide reading event, Read for the Record (RFTR), which invites children’s book authors to provide access to high-quality books to underserved communities. Through RFTR, volunteers included Assembly Member Harvey Epstein, NY State Assembly District 74, and the RFTR selected book author, Antwan Eady, to support with storybook reading during the event with Pace students. The event secured a $15k sponsorship to Jumpstart, which was the highest donation the organization has received from their corporate volunteers. Sarah also works closely with Pace’s School of Education to support students with fieldwork and to increase access to trained early education professionals in the classrooms. Sarah has recruited and supervised 20 students with the successful completion of their fieldwork hours, and some students returned to serve in the Jumpstart program as full-time members for the following academic year.

Sarah also served as a former AmeriCorps member and team leader at Jumpstart with St. John’s University from 2013 to 2015. She obtained her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in 2015 from St. John’s and since then has continued to commit to community engagement work. Sarah served as a volunteer for two years at DeSales Service Works in Camden, NJ, and one year in Peace Corps Armenia to gain the insight and technical skills needed to begin her career in the family and child welfare sector in New York City. Sarah also worked with teenagers and young adults ages 16 to 24 from New York City family homeless shelters at the non-profit CAMBA and foster care agencies before she began working at Pace University in 2021. Sarah concluded the 2023 year by obtaining her Master’s of Social Work from Adelphi University. During her time at Adelphi, she also served as a United Nations Youth Representative to Adelphi University, which was an opportunity that further her desire to work with young adults to create community-building initiatives. Her goal is to obtain her first license in social work so that she can continue to provide evidence-based and high-quality programming for Pace students through the Jumpstart program.

In June 2023, Kavanagh co-sponsored the bill, bringing us one step closer to its passing.

Most recently, and as one of Pace University’s Andrew Goodman Ambassadors, Jasmine assisted over 500 students to register to vote through bi-partisan political engagement programming, service events, tablings, and UNV 101 presentations. Not stopping there, this year, she played a pivotal role in establishing an on-campus polling site for the fall 2024 US presidential primary, ensuring accessible voting opportunities for her peers. Jasmine has been a part of the CCAR team for three years now, fostering community building on and off campus, and she looks forward to continuing in her senior year.

Outside of campus borders, Jasmine has taken a keen interest in nuclear disarmament advocacy. In the fall 2023 semester, Jasmine was selected for the Youth for the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (Y4TPNW). Through Y4TPNW, Jasmine was able to work alongside over 100 youth leaders from across the globe at the United Nations Nuclear Ban Week.

Professor Holmes is co-founder and director of Global Empowerment Theatre, an international non-profit theater organization dedicated to empowering underserved young people by providing a stage from which young voices, silenced by poverty and inequality, can be heard by peers, teachers, families, communities, and the rest of the world. For the past 17 years, GET has served artists, students, and educators with performances and workshops in India, Kenya, Myanmar, Tanzania, the United Kingdom, and the US. Professor Holmes built successful relationships with arts, educational, and governmental organizations, including Parikrma Foundation, Shining Hope for Communities, Akanksha Foundation, the New York Department of Education, the Ministry of Education in Zanzibar, and the Zanzibar International Film Festival, among others. A commitment to social justice and theater is evidenced in her creative endeavors. In 2019, Professor Holmes directed the US premiere of Last Train to Tomorrow, composed and conducted by Carl Davis, at Alice Tully Hall to commemorate the Kindertransport, and Shining Lights in the Lingering Night at The Great Hall, Cooper Union, in partnership with 400 Years of Inequality.

In addition, Professor Holmes has created and taught courses at Pace that reflect a commitment to social justice. Foundations of the Artist, conceived by Professor Holmes, is the first course to include mixed cohorts from all eight performing arts undergraduate programs and is one of the first Pace courses to receive the anti-racist education (ARE) designation. The course ensures that all students in Sands programs receive education in consent culture, storytelling for social good, community building, and healthy collaboration towards a more just performing arts industry. Professor Holmes has taught the course in the first two years of its inception, fall 2022 and fall 2023. She also designed International Teaching Artist Training: Devising Theatre for Social Change in Zanzibar, which she hopes will run in spring 2025. In this immersive course, which provides an introductory training in GET’s devising techniques in Zanzibar, Tanzania, students use theater-based techniques as tools for social change in international communities. Professor Holmes also teaches Theatre and Social Justice at Pace, a course for students passionate about social justice and interested in how theater intersects with socio-political issues to raise awareness and fight injustice. Students study theater and performance associated with various social movements to learn more about theater’s participation in social change.
