My name is Alex Sanders and I serve because City Year keeps me connected to the lifeblood of our nation, and allows me to be apart of the pump that supplies the healthy pulse of future generations.
I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, and attended various Cincinnati Public schools before attending Miami University. My work career started at the theme park, Paramount’s Kings Island and has grown to included the The National Uniderground Railroad Freedom Center, the Kroger Company, and the Chiwonki Foundation before deciding to join the City Year Detroit Corps in FY 2010-2011.
My future plans include joining the United States Coast Guard, Teach For America, the Peacecorps, and possibly teaching in the KIPP charter school system. I would also like to consider owning a business and maybe even running for a local political office towards midlife.
Fun Facts: I can write with both hands, I went to the Zoo Academy, I was the school mascot in elementary, and I want to learn how to do stand up comedy
