Portrait of Chinyere, smiling in front of a brick wall
Chinyere Farr-Douglas
Development and Communications Associate, VISTA

From the East Coast to the West Coast and now the Midwest, Chinyere has definitely touched down in all parts of the U.S. In every location she’s resided in, she’s always made it her mission to volunteer for youth-focused nonprofit organizations. Chinyere moved to Chicago in 2016 to complete her B.A. in Communications at the University of Illinois, Chicago. Immediately after finding out about 826CHI from her BFF, a previous volunteer, Chinyere applied for the Development and Communications Associate position. She knew 826CHI would be the perfect place for her to continue to support youth development while working towards her career goals. If she’s not writing in her journal or daydreaming about her future, you can find her reading articles on just about anything.
