Jennifer Morrison, MSW, MA

Jennie Morrison (she/her) has an interdisciplinary background, with experience in youth development, social work, oral history, and nonprofit communications. Jennie currently serves as the Communications Manager at Partnership for After School Education (PASE), a nonprofit that supports the afterschool practicum in New York City through professional development and capacity building services. Prior to joining the PASE team, Jennie worked in nonprofit and school-based settings in a variety of direct service, program management, and communications roles. After designing and leading out-of-school time and community engagement programs in public schools in Seattle, Washington at the beginning of her career, Jennie moved to New York City to pursue a graduate degree in social work at Columbia School of Social Work (CSSW), hoping to deepen her skill set for working with children, youth, and families. While at CSSW, Jennie studied on the Advanced Generalist Practice and Programming (AGPP) track, through which she discovered an interest in storytelling as a strategy for social change. This commitment to amplifying the voices of individuals closest to social justice issues, such as educational equity, in turn led her to pursue further training in nonprofit communications and oral history. At PASE, Jennie is thrilled to utilize her skills for ethical social impact storytelling in connection with her first area of professional passion: youth development. In addition to her MSW from Columbia School of Social Work, Jennie has a BA from Kenyon College and MA from the Columbia University Oral History Masters of Arts (OHMA) program.
