Allie Diefendorf, Director of Underclassmen Learning

Allie serves as BRYC’s Director of Underclassmen Learning. In this role, she manages the programming for the Underclassmen Transition Program, a suite of initiatives designed to ensure our 9th and 10th grade Fellows start high school strong, academically and socioemotionally.

Allie is a native of Albany, NY and a 2014 graduate of The University of Vermont. Upon graduation, she moved to Philadelphia, PA where she served as an AmeriCorps member with Communities in Schools (’14-’15) and City Year Philadelphia (’15-’17). Inspired by her students in Philadelphia, she joined Teach For America South Louisiana, teaching fifth grade math and science at Greenbrier Elementary School (’17-’19). After teaching, Allie returned to work with City Year as an Impact Manager at IDEA Bridge Academy and College Prep. She also worked part-time for BRYC as an ACT Associate, before joining full-time.
