Genesis Labra

After School Counselor

My name is Genesis, and I’ve been a counselor at the Riverdale Y for about 2 years. I’ve recently earned my Associates degree in Human Services, and I’m working towards my Bachelors degree and Hunter College! My end goal is to become a Clinical Social Worker for children and families in 5 years time.

My favorite part of the job would have to be interacting with the children in ways that let me get to know them, inside and out. It’s always so amazing to watch them grow, and become so much more independent!
