Travel and Service Program Director
Alysa grew up in the Berkshires and began her work with Becket-Chimney Corners YMCA as a trip leader for REACH and ICEP Sweden & Russia. Having enjoyed her experiences with the BCCYMCA community she made the permanent move back to the Berkshires in 2010 as the new Travel and Service program director.
Alysa holds a bachelor's in Experiential Education from Hobart and William Smith Colleges with a minor in writing. Her interests in alternative education have taken her around the globe from teaching English in Laos to volunteering in a Danish kindergarten. She has lived in South America, South East Asia, and Scandinavia and has worked in a wide range of educational institutions including public after school programs, outdoor centers focusing on inner city youth, and a kayaking company where she led tours of coastal Maine. When not working, you can find Alysa cooking, making art, and exploring new places near and far.
