James O’Brien

Afterschool Counselor

Hi, my name’s James, and I’m an after-school counselor for 4th graders at Kids Space at the Riverdale Y. I’m a third year college student, and I was born and raised in the Bronx. My favorite part about working at Kids Space is how rewarding it is to help a child make the right decision. Even though I’ve been at Kids Space for only a couple months, it feels like I’ve been here much, MUCH longer because of the great environment that both the staff and kids create for one another.

Philosophy

Any way in which I can help to guide the kids in the right direction is always a win!
