Yante Turner

Public Allies AmeriCorps Apprentice

Yante grew up on the north side of Milwaukee and currently attends the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee (UWM), majoring in pre-veterinary studies and psychology.  Yante began working with LGBT+ youth and doing advocacy work in 2016 when he became the outreach coordinator of UWM’s LGBT+ Resource Center.  This newfound appreciation and love of servicing for and engaging with LGBT+ youth pushed him to pursue a position in AmeriCorps Public Allies and then placement at Diverse & Resilient.  Yante is looking forward to creating curriculum that engages and stimulates growth within youth and making connections within communities.
