Born and raised in Harlem, New York, Duanecia Evans leads a Senior Managing Director Teach For America's national Public Partnerships Team. Duanecia's portfolio of partnerships specifically focuses on strengthening opportunities within the Black community. Duanecia has ensured the recruitment and retention of Black educators, forged partnerships between Teach For America and national organizations including UNCF, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc and the National Women's Law Center.
