Lindsay Baach – Florida Youth SHINE Coordinator
Lindsay Baach joined Florida Youth SHINE in October 2009. With a strong background in youth organizing, Lindsay has come on board to work on the infrastructure and organization of this growing statewide organization. Having not grown up in foster care, Lindsay works hard to collaborate with FYS members to gain a better understanding of unique issues and challenges that face youth who are currently in or have recently aged out of Florida’s foster care system.
Before coming to Florida Youth SHINE, Lindsay served as the NFTY Northeast Regional Advisor organizing leadership development and educational retreats for high school students throughout New England and assisting with NFTY’s programming on a national level. Prior to that, she was the Coordinator for Youth and Family Activities at The Temple in Atlanta.
In that time Lindsay saw exponential growth in the youth programs and developed an incredible teen board that is still thriving today. Lindsay is a graduate of the University of Central Florida. In her down time she can be found re-acclimating to her home state with her dog, Riley, after several very snowy years in Boston, MA.
