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.


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