Staff Profile: Whitney Sample

Born and raised in the South Bronx - where she currently lives - Whitney Sample joined the BronxWorks team as a receptionist at the Administrative office at 60 East Tremont Avenue in April 2015. Whitney first came to BronxWorks after learning about our employment assistance services from fellow members of the community: she participated in our Workforce Development programs this past year, where she worked with Community Coach Kenya Johnson and Instructor Dinorah Bobet to edit her resume and apply for positions. Having worked in social services previously, teaching and counseling children for the New York City Housing Authority, Whitney wanted to explore this field from a nonprofit administration perspective.
Whitney came to BronxWorks after earning her Associate's Degree in human services and social work from the Borough of Manhattan Community College, was drawn to BronxWorks by its potential for upward mobility and the chance to pursue opportunities at a wide range of programs. Whitney is currently working towards her degree in sociology and early childhood education at Lehman College. She eventually hopes to pursue her abiding interest in youth development and education in her future career, aiming to work with children as a guidance counselor.
