As a Project Coordinator for CityTutor DC, Jasmyn Gilmore supports the expansion of access to high-impact tutoring for DC public school students. She coordinates efforts to strengthen DC’s tutoring force and build school capacity for implementation within school schedules, as well as providing opportunities for tutoring outside of the school day.
Before joining CityBridge, Jasmyn spent a year working alongside New America for her graduate capstone project to contribute to an understanding of how culturally responsive education practices and resources are being implemented in the classroom. This research also served to highlight barriers and inequities within access to quality education, with consideration of how the impact of the pandemic continues to exacerbate these challenges. Her capstone experience, in addition to her academic exposure of courses that emphasized systemic racial injustices—particularly in education—have sparked a deep passion, desire, and commitment to dismantling historically inequitable systems in society through this work.
Jasmyn holds a B.A. in Psychology with a Minor Certificate in African American Studies, as well as a M.P.P. from the University of Maryland, College Park.
