Celeste Gordon

Community Care Manager
Celeste is thrilled to be part of the Headquarter Outreach Team directly aligning clients, partners and programs for equity in clean mobility at GRID! She earned a B.A. in Education and Spanish and an M.A. from NYU’s School of Education. For over 8 years she focused exclusively on strength based community building for a nonprofit running youth and family programs in NYC public housing and schools. Deeply believing in the power of capacity building and collaboration strategy prompted certification in Not-For-Profit Management from Columbia University. Her eclectic experience includes: collaboratively designing anti-bullying curriculum and policies, scaling national projects in the US and Spain, and advocating for community organizing and participatory evaluation that are youth-led. Music and dancing are what brings her the most joy and she is proud to be a beginning student of the electric bass with Nik West.
