Youth Program Manager
Osha Towers was born in Muskegon, Michigan but spent her early summers traveling to Milwaukee for family and developing performance skills by attending First Stage Theater Academy. In Michigan, Osha worked with the Community Foundation for Muskegon County to reallocate funds back into the advancement of youth-centered programs. Moving forward, Osha continued her education at Central Michigan University, studying sociology with a criminal justice concentration and cultural / global studies. She expanded on her desire to make an impact in diverse populations through her work with sexual aggression peer advocates as a program coordinator while functioning as an advocate and creating inclusive educational workshops on issues regarding sexual assault, domestic violence, stalking, harassment, and intimate partner violence. Osha is eager to connect her love for Milwaukee and her passion for growing communities by returning to serve as the youth program manager at Diverse & Resilient expanding upon access to resources, sexual health education, harm reduction, and growth for LGBTQ youth and people of color.
